Invitation: Plastic Recycling Working Group Meeting 22 June
Join us at the next Working Group Meeting to hear an update on the progress of the horticulture plastics recycling program (PoPPr). As an industry led initiative, all stakeholders in the greenlife packaging chain are invited to attend to learn about the program and participate in its progress.
Date: Tuesday 22 June 2021
Since our last meeting in February, APCO and GIA, with support from the Project Steering Committee have worked closely with Sustainable Resource Use (SRU), to consolidate the fantastic work already done by the Sustainable Packaging in Horticulture Working Group since we first came together in 2019. The product of that work is a clear business case outlining the rationale for the development of a national recovery and recycling program for plant packaging and recommendations leading into Stage 2 - Scheme Design.
To mark this major milestone and the culmination of three months’ work involving extensive consultation across the entire horticultural packaging value chain, we are pleased to bring the completed Stage 1 - Business Case back to the Working Group, to explain where we have landed.
Peter Allan from SRU will join us to talk through the process he has undertaken and his findings over the course of the project. We will also review the recommendations presented in the Business Case and outline what happens next as we move into Stage 2 - Scheme Design.
