From Saturday, April 6 it will became law for all businesses, charities, and public sector organisations to sort their waste for recycling.

The Workplace Recycling Regulations will require all business, public and third sector workplaces to separate key recyclable materials.

The following materials will need to be separated for collection: food; paper and card; glass; metal, plastic and cartons; unsold textiles; unsold small waste electrical and electronic equipment

Putting the recycling in different bins will improve its quality, making it more likely the materials can be used by Welsh businesses instead of being exported.

There will also be a ban on: sending food waste to sewer; separately collected waste going to incineration and landfill; all wood waste going to landfill.
