WHAT ARE PRNS?
PRNs (packaging recovery Notes) are the evidence required by producers of packaging waste to comply with the Producer Responsibility (Packaging Waste) Regulations 2005 in the UK. PRNs are issued by accredited reprocessors and act as an incentive to recycle and as a means for businesses to offset the amount of packaging that they place into the UK market. Packaging producers and handlers are obligated to purchase a number of PRNs every year based on the type of their business and the amount of packaging they handle. This is referred to as the businesses PRN obligation.

In order to comply a business must calculate their PRN obligation (packaging obligation) for the current compliance year in each specific material. There are six materials for which a business might have an obligation, plastic, paper, glass, aluminium, steel and wood. PRNs are material specific and businesses need only purchase PRNs to cover material that they have performed activity on.

The PRN market is an open market allowing PRNs to be traded between accredited reprocessors and obligated companies that have a packaging obligation. Trading of PRN’s for the current compliance year can take place between 1st December the previous year and 31st January the following year allowing registered companies to both buy and sell PRNS during this period. As with any open market the cost of compliance will vary throughout the year driven by the fluctuating price of PRNs.

Hi and a happy new year to you all. My apologies for not filling this out sooner but just been so busy. Can't complain at all about your services, you always try and accommodate our needs as its hard to judge when our bins will be full but you always help us out. And as for your representative Mr Lee Perry, well........ what can one say....... he's salt of the earth and always been upfront with me and he's always been there at the end of the phone with help and advice when needed, even when I've contacted him over the weekend or at alton towers. In a nutshell I'd recommend recycling management to anyone, 10 out of 10 all around. Cheers, Tim Aucott

Generally very good from the office to drivers. Confirmination of collection time / day could be slightly improved but overall very happy with the service.

In most cases we have been serviced well. Lee is and has always been very quick to respond to any of our issues.

The main issue for ourselves has been failed collections other than that things have gone very well over the last 12 months.

We have used RML across many projects for years, skip collection for my scrap metal. They can be trusted and payment is always prompt. They offer great service and the drivers are extremely helpful.
