RPC bpi recycled products proudly sponsors RECOUP 2018 Conference

RPC bpi recycled products is to be the headline sponsor of RECOUP’s Plastics Recycling Conference 2018.  RECOUP, now in its 28th year, is the UK’s leading authority on plastics waste and resource management.

Over 20 speakers are taking part in this year’s conference.  Mike Baxter, External Affairs Director at RPC bpi recycled products is one of them.  He said: “This year’s event has more relevance than ever to all stakeholders.  We face an unprecedented raft of new regulations and legislation which will dramatically change the face of our industry and how we all operate. Everyone in our sector – recyclers, collectors, local authorities, brands and retailers – will have to establish new and more co-operative business relationships if we are to rise to the challenge of issues such as Extended Producer Responsibility, the Circular Economy, and higher targets. This year’s RECOUP conference will provide this platform.”

RPC bpi recycled products is Europe’s largest plastic recycler, helping businesses dispose of a wide range of plastics and accelerate transition towards a circular economy by offering closed loop recycling schemes.  This provides a high-profile way for retailers, manufacturers and many other organisations to demonstrate the strength of their commitment to the environment.

RECOUP is a member-based plastics recycling organisation that works across the supply chain to promote good practice and information to aid the sustainable development of UK plastic recycling.  The 2018 conference will bring together plastics professionals from a wide variety of sectors throughout the recycling supply chain to share their experiences, knowledge and insight and to consider the latest best practices and developments worldwide.

Stuart Foster, CEO, RECOUP commented: “It is only through our member and sponsor support that we are able to provide a conference which brings the whole of the plastics recycling value chain together to discuss the issues facing the industry.  The spotlight is certainly on plastics recycling and it continues to attract public and media attention.   This also presents great opportunities for the industry to collaborate for the benefit of all links within the plastics recycling chain.”

RECOUP’s Plastic and Recycling Conference takes place on 27 September 2018 at the KingsGate Conference Centre, Peterborough.
