RECOUP Announce Plastics Recycling Awards Finalists

Plastics recycling charity, RECOUP, has always been at the forefront of raising awareness, showcasing innovation, and highlighting the potential for recycled content in products.   For the first time in its 32-year history, the organisation is running its awards to recognise those within the industry who are pushing the boundaries regarding opportunities for recycled content and new ways to improve recyclability and resource efficiency. 

Stuart Foster, RECOUP CEO, stated, “Ensuring recyclability of packaging and products and manufacturing new products with recycled plastics are two key elements of a successful plastic recycling system. With the intention to significantly increase plastic recycling as part of a circular economy model, there is an ongoing need to showcase and promote innovations to increase recyclability and practical applications of recycled plastics into both closed and open loop products.” 

The winners of these hotly contested awards will be announced at the RECOUP Conference on Thursday, 29th September 2022, where all the short-listed entries will be displayed.  The event offers an opportunity for organisations to demonstrate and showcase their commitments to sustainability and plastics resource management.   Registrations can be made at
