Recoup launch revised Recyclability by Design guide for plastics


The sixth edition of Recyclability by Design has been issued by Recoup.

In the guide, readers will be able to find examples of how simple changes to the design of a plastic product can help it to be recycled more easily.


Recyclability by Design takes contributions from all parts of the supply change to ensure all views are taken into account.

Recoup packaging technologist Paul East, who compiled the document, said: “There is no doubt that packaging must perform its primary function first and foremost. This is especially true for food packaging.

“There are, however, still many packs on the market where some minor changes could make a different to recyclability. The aim of Recyclability by Design is to highlight where simple changes can be made.”
