RECOUP Members Working Together

Date Published: Wednesday 14th October 2015

It is great to see RECOUP members, Tesco PLC and Eurokey Recycling Ltd working together recently on a project to turn plastic waste into a useful product for customers. The collaboration has resulted in Tesco being able to have their own back of store plastic waste, such as pallet and multi-pack wrapping, turned into a useful second life product by Papier-Mettler. The single use carrier bags are made from 100% recycled LDPE.  80% of the material is post-consumer plastic waste with the remaining 20% being made up of recycled plastic waste from the production process onsite.  The bags will be available throughout the supermarket chain for Tesco consumers from this October.
