The RECOUP Survey is an annual, specialist, research-based report for those working in, or making decisions about household plastics waste and the recycled plastics value chain. All UK Local Authorities, as well as County Councils and waste partnerships, are surveyed in an online questionnaire about many key areas affecting their operations and as such the Survey provides a comprehensive review of the collection of household plastics for recycling in the UK, and the opportunities and challenges facing Local Authorities and waste management providers. This webinar launches and outlines the key findings from the new 2021 Survey report.

Many advances have been made in addressing the challenges posed by the collection, sorting and recycling of plastics. However, there are still a number of sectors with challenges to achieve circularity due to factors such as the environment the plastic is used in, product design requirements or lack of recycling infrastructure. This webinar will explore some of the challenges and solutions within some of these complex sectors.

This webinar is aimed at highlighting the challenge in delivering and driving behaviour change on plastics recycling through the recycling message. The session will draw on case studies and ask the question ‘how can we better engage citizens, and how can we educate to increase plastics recycling rates and reduce plastics pollution'? The session will also ask if plastics packaging benefits are understood in relation to other less sustainable materials and how can we educate without unintended consequences?

Chaired by Paul Vanston, CEO, INCPEN.

With legislation changes and recycling technology developing, the Plastic Packaging Tax, Extended Producer Responsibility, Deposit Return Schemes, End of Waste protocols, requirements around material exports and new technology such as chemical recycling will all have an impact. This webinar will look at how plastic packaging recycling markets could change, and how the UK will need adapt and increase its own recycling capability to meet future demands.
