Packaging experts give their comments on the Q3 PRN data.
The release of 2019 Q3 packaging waste recycling and recovery data has sparked optimism from some packaging experts that the prices for aluminium and plastic PRNs will ease, although concerns have been raised over how robust the latest figures are.
The Q3 packaging data, published this week on the National Packaging Waste Database (NPWD) website, shows the overall volume of material collected to meet targets during the three months from July to September.
The figures are provisional until confirmed by the Environment Agency and are subject to change as more companies submit their data.
