Australian Recycling Label resources for councils

Are the more than 200 recycling labels used in Australia making you confused about how to dispose of packaging and empty items?

The Australasian Recycling Label – which featured at the 2019 National General Assembly – aims to help you correctly dispose of all parts of a product’s packaging.

The logo is one part of the evidence-based, nationwide Packaging Recycling Label Program that was created by Planet Ark, PREP Design and the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO), said APCO CEO Brooke Donnelly.

“There are currently more than 200 organisations that have committed to using the Australasian Recycling Label on their packaging, with support for the program growing every day.

“Research shows there are two common sources that people turn to when trying to understand how to recycle correctly: for general recycling advice it’s their local council, while for packaging specific information, they look to the label itself”.

This tool kit for local councils gives an overview of all available resources and suggestions for how and where they can be used.
