PLASTICS RECYCLERS EUROPE

Plastics Recyclers Europe was created in 1996 to represent plastics recyclers in Europe. It is located at Schuman in the heart of the European District in Brussels.
When created the association had 7 members. Currently Plastics Recyclers Europe has more then 100 members from all over the EU and this number will continue to grow.

In the first years of creation, EuPR recycled 200 000 tonnes of plastic waste. Today this amount reached 2,5 million tonnes and will continue to grow.

PRE consists of 8 Working Groups. Working Groups were set up, in order to represent particular interest groups - depending on the type of the polymer or type of waste processed. These are so called vertical groups. There are as well 3 horizontal groups which interact and stay in relation to the vertical groups. Their aim is as well to strengthen the PRE’s structure and allow for communication between all of the groups.

 

                                                            

LOCAL AUTHORITY RECYCLING ADVISORY COMMITTEE

LARAC - The Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee was formed in 1985 to represent the voice of local government recycling officers on waste and recycling.  It is still run by an executive of 20 volunteer local authority waste management officers plus two full-time staff.  Full membership is open to any local authority in the UK and associate membership is open to any local authority in Europe.

Aims and Objectives
• To inform and lobby key opinion formers and policy makers on LARAC members’ behalf
• To ensure that relevant and timely information is shared amongst LARAC members and that they are consulted on a regular basis
• To progress recycling and resource management in the UK through the actions and input of LARAC members

RECOUP

Recoup is a leading authority on plastics waste management and recycling, founded in 1990 to instigate and develop UK plastics packaging recycling opportunities at the request of industry.

WRAP

We were set up in 2000 to help recycling take off in the UK and to create a market for recycled materials.

As understanding grew that 'waste' is actually 'stuff with value' and that wasting resources made no environmental or commercial sense, governments across the UK increased efforts to tackle these issues.

Over the last decade, we have helped and continue to help governments devise strategies to deal with these issues through our expertise, research and practical advice.
