What does the Plastic Tax apply to?

The tax applies to plastic packaging manufactured in, or imported into, the UK where the plastic used in its manufacture is less than 30% recycled.

The rate of the Plastic Packaging Tax is £217.85 per metric tonne of plastic packaging, all companies purchasing packaging should keep records, even if all of what you manufacture or import contains more than 30% recycled plastic packaging. The requirement for recycled plastic packaging is set to rise considerably as the public seek answers to littering and pollution problems, pressuring brands to take action.

Looking for expert advice on Zero Plastic Packaging Tax products?

Cambrian has watched with interest over the years as the demand for (PCR) post-consumer recycled plastic packaging has grown. In 2017 we introduced our Ecycle™ range, which is made using 100% recycled HDPE (rHDPE). You can view that here. The first addition to the new Zero Plastic Packaging Tax range was the 250ml in natural HDPE but the range is growing all the while and now covers over 20 bottles including our popular 500ml and 750ml Elan spray bottles.

We’ll be adding more items to this range, so look out for the Zero Plastic Packaging Tax logo shown at the top of this page. The new bottles will be exactly the same popular shape, dimensions and weight as the standard items, meaning no changes to labels will be necessary. Samples can be requested on each product page via the website.

Bottle made using recycled material will usually show a grey or green tinge; we should think of this as a characteristic of recycled material not a problem. Attitudes toward colour are changing, click HERE to read our blog on this subject. 

For a complete solution from one quality supplier, it’s worth knowing that we specialise in trigger spray heads and spray bottles; we stock a comprehensive range of plastic bottles, dispensers, caps and closures. For example, if you are in need of small spray bottles for use with pet care products, we can recommend the quietest trigger spray heads or bottle sprayers for your purpose. We’re pleased to be the exclusive UK distributor for two leading trigger spray head manufacturers, in addition to stocking imported alternatives.
