Q3 verified packaging recycling data released

9th November 2017

Ash Clay

The Environment Agency has released the verified recycling data for Q3 2017. Recycling levels have remained largely unchanged from the unverified data which was originally released on the 23 October.

Please see final Q3 recycling rates with and without carry in below




Please note: 

UK Recycling total = Recycling performance of all materials

UK Recycling + total Recovery = Recycling performance of all materials and energy from waste (recovery) PRN’s


The data published today (9 November) shows we have had a positive Q3 and also shows good indications for the PRN market heading into Q4. 

We are hosting a PRN Market Update (2017 update and 2018 forecast) webinar on Wednesday 15 November at 10:00am for members of Comply Direct. This will cover the Environment Agency’s release of Q3 recycling data in greater detail and will provide members with an up-to-date overview of the 2017 PRN market and a materials and price forecast for 2018. If you are a member of Comply Direct register your free place today.

If you have any questions about the data, please don't hesitate to contact our packaging team at packaging@complydirect.com or call 01756 794 951.
