WRAP 80px

ACR+ member WRAP together with INCPEN (Industry Council for Packaging and the Environment) and ACP (Defra’s Advisory Committee on Packaging) presented recommendations on packaging regulatory reform in the UK.  Following six sector workshops, a summit was convened on 16 April 2018 to share the findings with stakeholders across the UK and agree on a set of recommendations to be sent to the Secretary of State. The recommendations are geared towards:

  • Achieving better packaging design
  • Making it easier for people to recycle, whether at home, at work, and on-the-go
  • Achieving higher quality, consistent collections
  • Encouraging UK reprocessing through quality feedstock
  • Creating markets with strong demand for recycled content

There was also support for the establishment of an independent arbiter to ensure that funds raised through the system are spent in the system in the most effective way possible.
