Nursery working group visits plastics recycling center

Date Published: Monday 8th April 2019

On Wednesday 27 March representatives from the horticultural industry visited Viridor’s Plastics Recovery Facility in Rochester, Kent to find out more about the plastics recycling process and the demand for polypropylene for recycling.

Attendees included members of the HTA Nursery Working Group, plant pot manufacturers and representatives from the charity RECOUP. RECOUP & the HTA are working together on a campaign to ensure Local Authorities accept non-black plant pots in their kerbside recycling schemes.

The visit allowed those businesses in the industry working with the taupe pot and other recycled / recyclable pots to see how the plastics recovery process worked and to track the journey of plastic through the waste stream and back into circulation.
