REPIC has joined both the Environmental Services Association (ESA) as an affiliate member and the  Resource Management Association in Scotland (RMAS) as a full member.

Louise Grantham, REPIC’s Chief Executive, commented on the developments: “This is a significant period of change for extended producer responsibility and resource management within the UK and across our nations. We recognise the importance of working with many actors across the resource management sector to deliver circularity for materials.”

The ESA is the trade body representing the UK’s resource and waste management industry. The ESA plays a vital role in driving higher standards within the industry and working alongside members to tackle the challenges and changes to enable us all to turn Britain’s waste into valuable resources, to build a better, more circular and sustainable future. A particular focus of the association is to continue working with Defra and other stakeholders on the details behind the Resources and Waste Strategy and the ongoing consultations taking place across 2021.

The RMAS is a not for profit, non-political membership organisation for micro, small and medium sized resource management companies operating in Scotland. With the aim to ensure its members are well informed and that priority issues, risks, and opportunities are communicated and represented effectively to the Government, its various agencies, the commercial sector and the public.

REPIC has extensive sector involvement across the WEEE industry and engages with waste and recycling associations both in the UK and Europe. Membership of both the ESA and RMAS provides further opportunities to continue its commitment to actively contributing to the successful operation of the UK EPR systems.

Louise added: “We are committed to partnering with organisations that bring industry experts together with the same common goal and vision to bring about sustainable solutions. As a producer led organisation we are able to offer a unique perspective to ongoing discussions about the implementation of EPR and look forward to contributing to the ESA and RMAS activities.”
