Compliance Services
Do I need to be concerned with compliance?

Compliance regulations have been brought into effect for a variety of waste types, in a bid to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill and to encourage reducing or reusing, as much as recycling, waste. Recycling Lives Compliance Services offer all types of compliance solutions to any UK businesses obligated to meet these regulations.

We will guide you on whether your business needs to meet producer responsibility obligations or to implement a distributor take back scheme, or both.

Our team of experts will advise you on the particular regulations pertinent to your business, offer advice on handling waste streams and sourcing evidence, and also look at solutions to managing waste streams within Recycling Lives HMP Academies.
