Guidance: Small-scale heat treatment of waste plastics for reuse: RPS 112

Updated: RPS updated to clarify who can benefit from it, including the type of treatment that can be carried out and the quantities to which it applies. This RPS allows heat to be applied to up to 100 tonnes of suitable plastics per week as part of a treatment process.

If you comply with the conditions in this regulatory position statement (RPS) you can use heat during the treatment of waste plastic for reuse without an environmental permit for a waste operation.
