Plastics Recycling Professionals vote to Remain or Brexit the EU

Date Published: Tuesday 21st June 2016

RECOUP attended the PDM show last week in Telford. Whilst at the show they asked visitors and exhibitors whether the UK should REMAIN or BREXIT from the EU by recycling their empty plastic drink bottles through the voting bins.

The voting bins sparked interesting debate, including varied views on how the decision would affect future investment in manufacturing facilities, imports and exports, and the recycling industry in the UK. There was a clear winner, with 65% voting to remain in the EU. It will be interesting to see if this affected the Referendum that takes place today. 


Anne Hitch, Communications Manager, of RECOUP said: “The Remain and Brexit decision will directly affect how the UK priorities recycling, sustainability and circular economy development, and it was interesting to hear the frank discussion from delegates about the affects the EU referendum could have”.
