If so, where does it t within the 4 reuse models?
1. Rell at Home
Users rell at home with rells purchased from retail
or sent via subscription service.
2. Rell On The Go
Bulk rell stations at retail.
3. Return On The Go
Users return packaging at a store or at drop o
4. Return from Home:
Users collect packaging, then free-post to a recycler such
as Terracycle. Or packaging is picked up from home by a
pick-up service (e.g. a logistics company).
Is the packaging recyclable within the current NZ waste
i.e. Glass, Unlaminated Card & Paper*, Steel & Tin Cans,
Rigid Plastic Polymer 1 (Clear & Coloured** PET) and Rigid
Plastic Polymer 2 (Clear and Coloured HDPE**).
*Card or Paper with a Wax or a petroleum based polyethylene (PE) coating
cannot be recycled in New Zealand.
Plastic Polymer 5 (PP polypropylene) can be used for hot ll. Avoid plastic
polymers 3 (PVC Polyvinyl Chloride) & 6 (PS Polystyrene) altogether. Be
aware that many councils across NZ are only accepting rigid polymers 1 & 2
**When Coloured PET and HDPE go through the MRF they are not
separated out for recovery. They bundled into mixed plastics (that cost Visy
$100 NZ a tonne to ship overseas). If coloured HDPE is recovered through
non-mechanical recovery systems (as operate in smaller centres) then it has a
limited market for recycling in NZ.
Will the residue of the contents of the packaging impact on its reuse or
recyclability? E.g. paint, engine oil, chemicals etc.
Does the packaging contain recycled materials such as
rPET, rHDPE, recycled bre?
