The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has organised a webinar to provide more details about the partnership between Recycle Mate and APCO, aiming to deliver recycling advice for used packaging, acting as the intersection between Check Locally, the waste and recycling end of the value chain and consumers.
The Australasian Recycling Label (ARL) program is an on-pack labelling scheme helping consumers recycle packaging correctly and supporting brand owners and packaging manufacturers to design recyclable packaging at end-of-life.
Recycle Mate communicates a recycling education platform that combines AI (artificial intelligence) technology with Australia’s one of the most comprehensive recycling directories to reduce contamination in recycling systems, improve resource recovery and support a circular economy.
Recycle Mate is dynamic – it communicates local recycling rules and provides granular and current information to consumers as recycling systems evolve, trials are implemented, and new schemes are rolled out. It provides kerbside advice and directs people to away-from-home recovery options.
The Australasian Recycling Label is the end goal – an on-pack label to provide the most easily accessible recycling/disposal advice for packaging formats accepted with consistent collection schemes nationally supported by mature recycling markets. Recycle Mate is helping to navigate the transition.
This partnership shows how organisations across the value chain work together to support optimal recycling behaviours during a transitionary phase as our industry moves to a circular economy for used packaging.
Speakers will include Adaptation Environmental Support founder and director Lara Barclay and APCO head of operations Sarah Sannen.
The webinar is scheduled for October 18, 2023 with the registration available online: http://aipack.com.au/event-registration/?ee=408
