With the EPR implementation for packaging on its way, we explore the value of trialling new recycling systems ahead of legislative changes. While many difficult to recycle waste streams are not captured via current environmental compliance there are opportunities for the packaging value chain to demonstrate proactivity and help inform government decisions. We will look at a few examples of difficult to recycle waste materials, including flexible plastics and coffee pods, and how innovative recycling schemes are paving the way to move towards a more circular economy.
