Alupro’s response to recycling targets consultation

Consultation on changes to packaging recycling business targets for paper, steel, aluminium, wood and overall recovery and recycling for 2018-20

Alupro fully supports the Government’s ambition “to have appropriate targets which ensure that the UK complies with the EU Packaging Directive targets whilst maximising the benefits for consumers, businesses and the environment” but in its response to the consultation suggests that the  aluminium targets are restructured.  Alupro proposes an increase to the 2017 aluminium target and that in subsequent years the targets are ‘front-loaded’. It believes this structure would maintain the momentum in the aluminium sector and help realise  Alupro’s ambition to ensure that the “real” recycling rate for aluminium packaging is measured meaning that all aluminium packaging collected for recycling is captured by the PRN system.
