As set out in the National Infrastructure Strategy, waste tracking technology is the future of a high-tech circular economy underpinned by world class digital infrastructure, and will ensure that all waste movements across our economy can be tracked, supporting resource efficiency as well as informing sustainable future infrastructure investment. Full details can be found in the strategy - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-infrastructure-strategy.

This SR will also ensure progress in implementing flagship Environment Bill measures including extended producer responsibility for packaging waste, the introduction of a deposit return scheme, and consistent collection of waste – including food waste – in every local authority in England.
