Local companies warned about packaging waste fines 



A Gloucester based business has been fined £18,000 plus costs because of the material they used to package their goods - and a warning had gone out to Peterborough companies not to get caught as well.

Craig Bunday of 100AD Packaging Consultants has been keeping a close eye on the activities of Trading Standards Officers around the country and wants to ensure they do not swoop in this city.

He said: "A lot of companies donít realise the size of the fines that can be levied by the Government if they donít meet their packaging waste obligations.

"Itís not something they can opt out of - those regulations are named Ďessentialí because thereís no option.

And he added a chilling warning: "Sooner or later, companies will get the Trading Standards Officers knocking at their door!"

Any firm producing over 50 tonnes of packaging waste per year, and has a turnover of more than £2m, needs to track its packaging waste to meet obligations.

Mr Bunday, recently elected as chairman of the Posh chapter of Business Network International (BNI) for the next six months is offering advice to any company that fears it may be in danger.

"It is so much better to be safe than sorry," he said. "100AD Packaging Consultants can help any company be ready for when the Trading Standards people pay a visit."

100AD Packaging Consultants can look after packaging needs for companies of all shapes and sizes, who need to package items of all shapes and sizes.
