Reloop North America

Across North America, Reloop works to inform, develop and promote well-drafted policies that will lead to high-performing circular collection systems for packaging.

We pay attention to the full supply chain, from product design through to post-collection processing.

At a local, state, province and federal level, we work with a broad range of stakeholders, seeking to add value through our unique international viewpoint and analytical approach.

Our current focus is on policy that will accelerate the integration of resuable packaging into the mainstream, as well as a multi-State project that’s exploring how existing collection systems for beverage containers can be modernised and expanded.
