Alupro Aerofoil scheme celebrates second anniversary

Alupro’s Aerofoil programme is celebrating its second anniversary with more than 5.8 million households now benefiting from expanded recycling services.

The scheme, which helps local authorities to add foil and aerosols to their collections and to promote recycling services, was launched in 2009.

Alupro executive director Rick Hindley, said: “We set out to help 80 local authorities add aerosols and foil to their services. In fact 98 authorities have now changed their kerbside programme to include either or both materials as a result of this programme.

“We see it as a great success and an excellent example of how partners within the industry can facilitate extended producer responsibility, supporting the public sector to make a real difference.”
