The Works Stores, a UK high street and online discount retailer of books, art and craft materials, gifts, toys, games, has admitted that between 7 April 2010 and 7 April 2016 it had not been registered as a producer of waste packaging due to lack of awareness of The Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations.

The organisation will pay £35,868.12 through an Enforcement Undertaking accepted by the Environment Agency to the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.

The Environment Agency is increasingly using this method of enforcement to restore and improve the environment, change behaviour and improve practices.
