WRAP revises paper and wood packaging forecasts

Posted on 8 August 2016

Long-awaited estimates for the amount of paper and wood packaging likely to be recycled by 2020 have been published by WRAP today (4 August).

The Wood Flow and Paper & Card Flow reports, which have been delivered in partnership with compliance scheme Valpak, provide forecasts on how much material has been placed on the market (POM) and will be recycled in the UK for the period 2014-2020.

It follows prior packaging flow reports produced by Valpak and WRAP, including one for plastics packaging which found that more of the material had been recycled than previously thought – leading to a reduction in the annual target.
