Organisations involved
RECOUP (RECycling of Used Plastics Limited) is a registered charity and not-for-profit member based organisation.  RECOUP works in collaboration with stakeholders to increase the levels of plastics recycling within the UK

How does it work?
The guidance is a detailed document to be used by packaging manufacturers and developers, to aid in the production of packaging by looking at recyclability from the outset.  To ensure the accuracy, RECOUP have engaged with sorting facilities and re-processors to ensure the information is current, informative and accurate. Includes detailed technical tables that explain how packaging features such as closures, body or decoration, for instance, are compatible or not suitable for recycling.
