PlasRecycle joins the Resource Association


Post-consumer plastic film reprocessor PlasRecycle has become the latest full member of the Resource Association.

Its membership was approved at a meeting of the board of the Association this week in Belfast.

PlasRecycle chief executive Duncan Grierson (pictured left) said: “We are very pleased to join the Resource Association as a member. We are both part of the big move towards a circular economy, putting waste materials back into the manufacturing system. We are already recycling plastic bags from 50 local authorities, converting this waste stream back into granulate for making various products. We provide a UK-based green solution, which is an alternative to landfill, incineration or export.”

Resource Association chief executive Ray Georgeson (pictured right) added: “We warmly welcome PlasRecycle into the membership and appreciate its support for our work promoting the recycling quality agenda and the development of green jobs and circular economy solutions here in the UK. We look forward to its active involvement in our activities at this important time for future resources policy development.”
