Plastic Packaging: PAFA warns of danger of lack of recycling infrastructure

The UK Packaging and Films Association (PAFA, Nottingham; www.pafa.co.uk) has warned that the UK government risks setting unachievable plastic recycling targets before ensuring there is the infrastructure in place to make recycling more efficient in the country.

Meanwhile, PAFA welcomed the statement by Liz Goodwin, CEO of the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP, Banbury / UK; www.wrap.org.uk) that that “it’s no longer enough to look at the impact of packaging alone”, as the targets for the second stage of Courtauld Commitment, which is designed minimise resource usage in the grocery sector to reduce the climate change impacts, were announced.
