Cambridge City and South Cambridgeshire Shared Waste Service
Two waste teams collecting bins from over 116,000 homes across Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire have joined forces in a bid to reduce cost. Cambridge City Councilâ€™s fleet of 27 bin lorries have begun operating from Waterbeach depot, where South Cambridgeshire District Councilâ€™s waste operations are based. The management teams for the two councilsâ€™ waste operations came together in August â€“ saving over Â£100,000 a year â€“ and with the operations now working out of one depot, further efficiencies will be sought to drive down costs. Cambridge City Councilâ€™s waste crews and staff had previously operated from a depot on Mill Road which is earmarked for redevelopment in the future.

Lincolnshire Waste Partnership
The Lincolnshire Waste Partnership (LWP) aims to:
- Provide innovative, customer-friendly waste management.
- Seek the best environmental options.
- Give value for money to Lincolnshire residents.
- National policy — In December 2018 the Government published its new national waste and resources strategy for England.
- Food waste — The national strategy proposes weekly food waste collections from 2023, in preparation they have been running a trial for food waste collections in South Kesteven to understand the challenges this may bring. They are seeking a sustainable and renewable solution which will be explored over the next few years.
- Plastics — Since the adoption of the Lincolnshire strategy, the world has seen a blaze of interest in plastic waste and how the recycling we collect is handled. Media investigations have challenged waste management practices and raised the profile of accountability and social responsibility.
- Waste crime — The Environment Agency (EA) has an open invitation to LWP meetings providing advice and guidance, the LWP also support the EA in waste crime operations in the county.
- Recycling quality — A separated paper and card collection trial in place from September 2019 with the aim of avoiding any contact with liquids and food, keeping it clean and dry, means they can meet high quality standards of the paper mills who recycle waste paper and card saving vital natural resources. The trial has been a great success and plans are underway to expand collections to more areas in Lincolnshire.
- The wider environment — Driving many miles to collect and dispose of waste increases the carbon footprint for their transport operations so they have worked to optimise routes and are investigating how, in the longer term, they can change to different vehicle fuels to reduce their CO2 emissions.

Perpetual Plastic for Food to Go (PPFTG)
The Perpetual Plastic for Food to Go (PPFTG) project aims to find solutions to existing issues with plastic packaging, reduce plastic waste and pollution, and unlock barriers to create fundamental changes within UK industry. Funded by the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging Challenge (SSPP) this 3-year project is led by Loughborough University in collaboration with industry partners from across the food to go supply chain. Taking a design-led approach, this project will develop, prototype, and evaluate a novel circular business model that combines smart-technology enabled products and services to reduce the environmental, societal, and economic impact of food to go packaging.
Petcore Europe is the association representing the complete PET value chain in Europe since 1993. Its mission is to ensure that the entire PET industry is well aligned to enhance its value and sustainable growth, to represent the PET industry before the European institutions and other stakeholders, to ensure that PET is positioned as an outstanding packaging material and recognised as environmentally sound, to support and validate innovative packaging solutions from a recycling perspective, and to work with all interested parties to ensure a continuous increase of PET post-consumer collection and recycling. PET (PolyEthylene Terephthalate) is a strong but lightweight form of polyester. It is used to make containers for soft drinks, juices, drinks, water, edible oil, fresh food and dairy as well as household cleaners and other non-food applications. PET bottles and food containers, such as sheets and trays are perfectly recyclable while they help to reduce CO2 emissions and food waste.

The immediate focus of Polytag is the FMCG sector and to implement its technology to enable them and their manufacturers the ability to recover their own packaging materials (principally polymers) through the current waste infrastructure for onward recycling (not down-cycling) and compounding back to a known material specification for reuse into their own products.
PPS Recovery Systems Ltd
PREP Design Pty Ltd
PREP Design was founded in 2017, shortly before forming a strong partnership with OPRL to make PREP available to OPRL’s rapidly expanding membership. PREP is used at the design stage of packaging (all materials) to ensure it is actually recyclable in the UK market. Now, whilst it is appreciated there are many variable factors across the UK recycling market, PREP does a good job at simulating the journey of packaging from collection, its sorting via the UK MRFs, and its behaviour with the down-stream reprocessors. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), made up of experts from across the supply chain, now assists OPRL to ensure the PREP settings are as accurate as possible and are adjusted as the market changes. Uniquely, PREP provides immediate feedback to the designer to explain why an item of packaging is not recyclable so changes can be made before going to market. PREP look forward to working closely with OPRL and us to assist with OPRL’s new Recyclability Certification scheme for plastics.
