Sarah Foster, Comply Direct's Commercial Manager was delighted to speak about the PRN system at The Plastics Design & Moulding (PDM) Event on 19 June in Telford
The event ran over 2 days from 19-20 June 2018 and took place at the Telford International Centre with Sarah been the only female amongst 27 speakers from the industry speaking. Presentations included 'What will Brexit mean for the plastics industry?', ‘Made in Britain and the benefits of using the marque to UK plastics manufacturers' and 'The China crisis – the Chinese ban on plastic waste imports, and what it means for the British recycling industry'.
Comply Direct were delighted to be invited to speak about the PRN system and present ideas on striking the right balance with the evolving PRN system. Sarah was well received by the audience and had the chance to explore the following with the engaging audience: What are the proposed changes to the PRN system?; How could they be implemented?; How will industry stakeholders be impacted?.
‘It was interesting to note that during audience participation, the majority felt that the PRN system could be improved and there seemed to be genuine support for bringing in new aims and complementary measures that better reflect the position of consumers such as recycled content and recyclability. Topically, around half of attendees to the presentation indicated that they would be in favour of a Deposit Return Scheme for plastic bottles, provided it was implemented in a cost-effective, sustainable manner. It was a pleasure to be invited to talk about PRNs and give exposure to a subject matter that we are very passionate about at Comply Direct’.
