Natural Resources Wales has powers under legislation to recover the costs of some of its services. Under these powers, people and organisations that require an environmental permit or specific services pay for the cost of the service, rather than it being funded from general taxation.
The regulations that we are consulting on, relate to operators who sort 1000 tonnes per year or more of mixed dry household or household-like waste material, to produce glass, metal, paper or plastic recyclate. The regulations affect approximately 30 existing waste permit holders in Wales.
The charge proposed in this consultation - £2,065 per year - is to cover the expected regulatory costs of a planned annual inspection, an unplanned annual inspection and to take any follow up action with operators who need help with compliance.
