Recycling Industries

Volume 454: debated on Monday 11 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what support his Department offers to British industries dealing in recycled materials. (105538)

The DTI does not provide direct support specifically targeted at industries dealing in recycled materials. However, the DTI does support such businesses through a range of general support mechanisms and is actively encouraging greater levels of resource and waste efficiency, in conjunction with Defra and HM Treasury, through the Business Resource Efficiency and Waste programme.

In addition, the DTI is working closely with the industry via the National Resource and Waste Forum to help build cross-sectoral solutions and to promote sustainable resource and waste management.
