    UK INK CARTRIDGE FIRM HIT WITH A $15,000.00  PACKAGING WASTE FINE
    Ink cartridge manufacturer Dynamic Cassette International has been fined more than £10,000 ($15,000.00 )for failing to comply with packaging waste legislation.Dynamic had not registered with the Environment Agency or compliance scheme during 2007 and 2008 and avoided paying £2,562 in that time.

    Boston Magistrates’ Court fined the firm £8,000 and ordered it to pay £2,058 in costs.
    In a statement to Packaging News, Dynamic, which represented itself in the case, recognised the error, but said it had always been committed to recycling.”One employee’s misinterpretation of the rules lead to this unfortunate situation which has now been rectified. Dynamic was able to show conclusively that it is able to support recycling as one of its core business commitments.”Dynamic is involved in the research and development and manufacturing of ink cartridges, ink formulation and packaging design.

    The statement continued that the firm had invested more than £800,000 and had worked with major grocery and high street retailers across Europe to reduce packaging by more than 40%.The Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations require firms that have a turnover of more than £2m and that handle more than 50 tonnes of packaging a year to register with the Environment Agency of packaging waste compliance scheme.Environment office Claire Parker said: “The [fine] shows that the Environment Agency will actively seek to find and prosecute companies who do not comply with these regulations.”
