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?

The Environment Agency has a filed a report on the case here. ®
