RECOUP conference pushes plastic industry to ‘seize the day’ on plastic recycling

UK plastic recycling charity RECOUP has announced it will be holding its Plastics Recycling Conference on 27 September 2018 and will be challenging delegates to answer whether the plastics industry has done enough to “seize the day” and make the most of the opportunities afforded by the explosion of interest in plastic waste.

The conference will take place at the KingsGate Conference Centre, Peterborough, on 27 September 2018, and will seek to question whether the UK plastics supply chain is doing enough to demonstrate its proactivity in dealing with the issue of plastic waste, by going beyond the minimum legal requirements and showing real leadership on the subject.

The conference has secured sponsorship from RPC BPI Recycled Products, as well as from Aura Soma, the British Plastics Federation (BPF) and Plastics Europe, in association with PIRAP, Tomra Sorting Solutions and Eastman.
