It has been a hectic couple of months for LARAC and I have found myself out and about quite a lot, representing the views of our members as best as I can to anyone who will listen. This has involved two packaging organisation related events and two Parliamentary Committees.

In response to the Defra Consultation on WEEE Compliance Fee Methodology, LARAC has expressed concern about the issues their members are having in getting WEEE Producer Compliance Schemes to contract with them to service DCF. LARAC highlights the fact that local authorities are increasingly having to use Regulation 34 notices in order to get their DCF’s cleared of WEEE.

LARAC has stated that regardless of which proposal DEFRA decides to adopt, the ongoing situation of non-collection from DCF by PCS is unacceptable.

Carole Taylor is to become the tenth Chair of LARAC, taking over from Andrew Bird in January 2018. Carole, who is Waste and Recycling Co-Ordinator for Pendle Borough Council, is currently one of the two Vice-Chairs of LARAC and has also been Treasurer of the organisation in the past. Carole has been a member of the Executive since 2002 when she was first elected as the North West representative and is one of its longest standing members.
