25. OPRL is a business-led UK labelling scheme that has been operating for over 10 years. Over 550 brands across all sectors use the label on their packaging products. The OPRL is based on what technically can be recycled as well as what is collected for recycling through local recycling services. The threshold for the widely recycled label is 75% for UK local authorities offering a collection service.
26. OPRL About OPRL; this is supported by surveys carried out by WRAP, which show that OPRL labels are generally better understood than other recycling symbols currently on packaging.
