Waste material in industrial and commercial organisations can be reused directly within the organisation itself, reused by third parties, repaired or refurbished prior to reuse or recycled into further products.

There are regulatory requirements to recover and recycle some waste types eg packaging, batteries and electrical and electronic equipment.

In addition, there is a duty on all producers of waste destined for landfill to ensure that the waste is pre-treated (where this is technically feasible).
