Armstrong is a member of the management committee of Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE, Brussels; and a committee member of the British Plastics Federation’s (BPF, London; recycling group.

About his new position, Armstrong said, “I am delighted to be elected chair of Recoup, whose expertise and teamwork approach have made it one of the most respected advisors on plastic recycling. We are now more relevant than ever given the challenge of increasing targets for collection, coupled with the urgent need for additional UK processing capacity.”
