65% of plastics recycling professionals vote to remain in the EU

Recoup, the plastics recycling member based organisation, asked visitors and exhibitors and Plastics Recycling Expo (held last week in Telford), whether the UK should remain or brexit from the EU by recycling their empty plastic drink bottles through the voting bins.

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, of 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”.
