Recyclability By Design

There is much work being done to align materials and reduce their complexities through consistency work.   RECOUP continue to encourage packaging manufacturers through their Recyclability By Design Guidance to ensure that packaging end destinations remain high on the agenda throughout the design process. 


Packaging manufacturers and developers are able to utilise RECOUP’s Recyclability By Design Guidelines to aid in the production of packaging which looks at recyclability from the outset.   This document has gained a wider following and RECOUP have been busy updating with wider industry input and specific case studies.  


The most important aspect of the publication, the polymer specific recyclability tables, have been reviewed and revised for the updated version. To ensure the accuracy, RECOUP have engaged with sorting facilities and re-processors to ensure the information is current, informative and accurate. RECOUP Packaging Technologist, Paul East, declared; “As the polymer specific recyclability tables are the most important and relevant part of the document, we are very grateful to members from the recycling industry for their valuable time, input and approval in reviewing and confirming the accuracy of the tables.”


As with recent updates, RECOUP members have contributed their thoughts and opinions, to relay details of ongoing projects to improve the quantity and quality of recycled plastic packaging.
