Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: The Resource Association is a professional advocacy body for the reprocessing and recycling industries in the UK.

Our mission is to support the development of a sustainable and healthy industry by providing a voice, forum and leadership for the materials reprocessing and recycling industries, as well as related environmental and social interests. Member companies will promote the management of materials as resources not wastes.

Our vision is for a resource-efficient materials economy that realises value, prizes quality and seeks to maintain the integrity of the secondary materials that are still too commonly treated as waste.
