Lord de Mauley considers hedging market for waste


The Minister is right to identify the opportunities which a functioning futures market could offer. A key to delivering that will be the establishment of verifiable quality standards. Before people will commit to buying a tonne of plastic bottles, they will want to know what is meant by that and be confident they will get a tonne of bottles and not 700Kg mixed with 300 Kg of assorted junk. The starting point is a robust sampling regime under the MRF Code of Practice.
