Plastic recycling charity RECOUP has announced that it has had to postpone its annual conference due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The next event will now take place on 30 September 2021.
RECOUP citizen and stakeholder engagement manager Anne Hitch said: “While disappointing, it is crucial that we put the safety and welfare of attendees and staff first.
“Despite efforts to put procedures in place to comply with social distancing guidelines, it became clear that we have no alternative but to postpone the 2020 event.
“It is a double disappointment as 2020 marks 30 years of RECOUP’s influence and work within plastics resources and recycling.”
