EPRO - European Association of Plastics Recycling and Recovery Organisations

About EPRO

EPRO is a pan-European partnership of specialist organisations that are able to develop and deliver efficient solutions for the sustainable management of plastics waste, now and for the future. 

The organisation provides a unique forum for the leading specialists in plastics waste management from across Europe to exchange learning, develop integrated plastics packaging waste strategies and support technological development.

EPRO members are working to optimise national effectiveness through international co-operation: by studying successful approaches, evaluating different solutions and examining obstacles to progress. By working together EPRO members can achieve synergies that will increase efficient plastics recycling and recovery.


  • To exchange and publish information and experiences.
  • To develop improved strategies for prevention, recycling and recovery of plastics packaging waste with regard to the EU thematic strategy on waste and recycling.
  • To support technological projects designed to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of plastics recycling and recovery throughout Europe.
  • To evaluate new technologies and to stimulate improved quality and value of used plastics on a scientific basis.


RECOUP are a longstanding member of the European Association of Plastics Recycling and Recovery Organisations (EPRO). We work together with 19 organisations representing 16 countries on developing best practice and innovative approaches to plastics packaging recycling across Europe.

It’s vital to understand the European view on plastics recycling. Every organisation involved in the plastic supply chain needs to be aware of what takes place across Europe as systems and areas of strength are different for every country. 

To ensure the outputs are beneficial to RECOUP members and the wider UK plastic packaging recycling community we work within a number of working groups including best practice, bottles, mixed plastic and energy from waste.
