Recycling Victoria – A new economy
Recycling Victoria represents the Victorian Government’s action plan to reform our waste and recycling system over the next decade. Victoria’s transition to a circular economy will be guided by four goals spanning the life cycle of materials (make, use, recycle and manage). Each goal is designed to maximise value and minimise waste. For further information, click here.
Australasian Recycling Label (ARL)
Confusion about how to recycle different types of packaging is creating a considerable challenge for consumers in Australia. To address this, the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) launched a nationwide labelling scheme to help consumers better understand how to recycle products effectively and assist brand owners to design packaging that is recyclable at end-of-life. This provides clear and consistent on-pack recycling information to inform consumers of the correct disposal method. Find out more about the ARL program here.
APCO is a co-regulatory, not-for-profit organisation that partners with government and industry to reduce the harmful impact of packaging on the Australian environment.
