The plastics recycling member based organisation was at the Plastics Recycling Expo conference recently, bringing together key players from the plastics and recycling sectors.
Visitors and exhibitors were asked whether the UK should Brexit or Remain in the EU – by recycling their empty plastic drink bottles through ‘voting’ bins that were set up.
RECOUP said 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.
Anne Hitch, communications manager, 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”.
