Informing Defra policy – please provide your input
We are supporting a new research study to map the AD and composting industries. This is an important opportunity for the sector to feed in data and views to inform Defra policy. Changes in policy could impact upon your business in the future. The study will collect a range of data including upon inputs, rejected waste, throughput, outputs, end destinations and use of technology.
A representative for Defra said: “We are reviewing policies to support the recycling of bio-waste to ensure that we can maximise the benefits of anaerobic digestion and composting, whilst managing the risks. We need reliable evidence to inform our future policy on bio-waste treatment options and extending the collection of household food and garden waste.”
From September 2019, Winning Moves, an independent research consultancy, will begin data collection for the study (on behalf of WRAP). You may be contacted by telephone or email. It would be really helpful if you could please take the time to provide the data requested.
If there is a particular person in your organisation who is best placed to deal with this request, please pass on their name and contact details to Liz Victor, Senior Research Executive at Winning Moves.
