British plastic recyclers go Dutch

They don't eat spotted dick and we don't wear clogs, but plastic recyclers from Britain and Holland united last week for an international first.

Members of the British Plastics Federation (BPF) Recycling Council combined their usual quarterly meeting with visits to two Dutch recycling plants and an informal meeting with VKR, the Dutch plastic recycling organisation.

It was the first time that two national plastics recycling organisations had met to exchange views and ideas.

Reflecting on the Eindhoven trip, BPF Recycling Council chairman Mark Burstall said: "Supply chains work differently in the two countries and this was a valuable opportunity for the UK delegation to understand these differences."
