Dabs.com fined £8k for recycling failure
Waste not, want not
Dabs.com has been fined £8,000 for failure to comply with recycling rules designed to cut the amount of packaging waste.
The Bolton-based online computer retailer pleaded guilty to eight offences under Producer Responsibility Regulations 1997.
Under UK law, companies handling "significant amounts of packaging with a sufficient turnover must register with the Environment Agency. They must then either arrange themselves to have certain amounts of packaging waste recycled and recovered each year, or join a registered scheme to do it on their behalf," the Environment Agency says.
Guess who Dabs.com didn't register with?
