The Recycling Association
The Recycling Association represents more than 80 UK recycling organisations producing more than 2 million tonnes of recyclate a year. We are committed to high quality recycling and are promoting this across the full recycling supply chain via our ongoing Quality First campaign.
Founded in 1975, we are the largest network of independent waste and recycling operators in the UK with a combined annual turnover in excess of £5 billion.
Our members provide recycled material to re-processors in the UK and across the world. This helps manufacturers to use sustainable recycled materials, reduces landfilling and cuts reliance on single use commodities.
We work at regional, national, European and international levels. Whether through lobbying, campaigning, developing relationships and opportunities or supporting members with best practice, operational or legislative advice, our aim is to support UK recycling, maximising both material quantity and quality.
We recognise that quality represents an ongoing challenge for the recycling sector. We believe that achieving high quality recycling outcomes is the responsibility of the complete supply chain, from householder through to purchaser. Our Quality First campaign seeks to make it easier to achieve our quality goals.
