What our members say

Adrian Hawkes
Valpak

“RECOUP have a wealth of detailed knowledge and practical expertise which is coupled with a genuine passion for bringing about change within the plastics value chain, putting them in a unique position for driving forward positive change in plastics recycling and reducing plastic waste.”

Adrian Whyle
RECOUP Trustee

“As a previous RECOUP member, I am proud to be a RECOUP trustee. Their work in promoting the circularity of plastics through citizen engagement is exemplary and fills a much-needed space in helping the UK increase its recycling and materials efficiency goals.”

 

Ben Armstrong
Gifford School

Pledge2Recycle Plastics, RECOUP’s educational programme, kept the children very engaged in the workshop. It was very hands-on and encourage the children to ask many questions too. The presentation was engaging and delivered in an easy to understand way for the age group. Children and staff loved it and hope to have a visit and presentation again in the future.”

 

Mike Baxter

Robbie Staniforth
Ecosurety

“RECOUP provide a fantastic network and forum for discussing all things plastic. Their events are expertly co-ordinated and efficiently organised to cover the breadth of issues effecting the recycling of plastics and actions being taken. We have directly benefitted from their in-house understanding of the market landscape for recycling plastics, whether it be in designing more recyclable products or creating demand for used material.”

Steve Woods
Mercona

“RECOUP has become my go-to organisation for making sense of all the facts and figures shared around. RECOUP produce non-biased evidence-based reports, freely available to members. The testing that RECOUP provides free to members has provided our organisation valuable data and insights. We have been able to make adjustments to increase the recyclability levels of our products. The enthusiasm and professionalism of the RECOUP team make them a pleasure to work with.”

Denise Mathieson

Without doubt being part of the RECOUP membership is fundamentally important to us. RECOUP provide the entire plastics industry with a forum to come together to discuss all aspects of plastics and recycling. Their ‘Design For Recyclability Guidelines’ is the go-to bible for all. The support of the team has been invaluable and helped us to drive forward with an Industry changing project.”
