Ecosurety first compliance scheme to join OPRL

Ecosurety has become the first compliance scheme to sign up to the UK’s On-Pack Recycling Label (OPRL) scheme.

Ecosurety and OPRL have many joint members, and by signing up to the OPRL scheme, Ecosurety hopes to be able to offer its members a fully aligned service on the recyclability and labelling of their packaging.

The OPRL scheme, which was founded in 2009 by leading retailers and brands to engage consumers more actively in recycling, has three categories that tell consumers how likely it is that their local authority will accept specific packaging materials for recycling.
