LARAC has commended the principles and ambition shown by the London Mayor in the London Environment Strategy as part of its response to the recent consultation. LARAC pointed out that if the recycling ambitions are to be realised any future policies will need to be fully funded to have any chance of succeeding. LARAC believes this needs to be coupled with products being truly designed for recycling at their end of life and so has urged the Major to lobby on this so that stronger producer responsibility policies will help ensure this happens.
LARAC urged DEFRA to support the existing and comprehensive local authority kerbside collection systems in its response to the recent call for evidence on DRS for drinks containers. LARAC has stated that DRS could help provide and expand an on-the-go collection infrastructure where the concept of proper producer responsibility could help increase UK recycling levels. LARAC is concerned that a wider DRS scheme for the UK will duplicate the kerbside collections leading to loss of material and income for local authorities already battling severe budget cuts.
