It removes confusion, saves time and reduces waste going to landfill. You can find it on the packaging of the things that you buy at the supermarket and other participating stores. It has easy-to-understand instructions about how to correctly dispose of every part of a product’s packaging.</p> <p>The ARL removes recycling confusion. When we dispose of our waste correctly, we keep contamination out of the recycling stream and recyclable material away from landfill.</p> <p>Unlike other labels, the ARL is an evidence-based system underpinned by the Packaging Recyclability Evaluation Portal (PREP). As not all packaging is created equal, not all recycling labels should be the same. It is not possible for a piece of packaging to have the ARL without a PREP assessment that backs up disposal claims.</p> <p>PREP assesses not only the materials used to manufacture a piece of packaging, but also its shape, weight, size, inks, adhesives used and many other variables. PREP simulates the behaviour of packaging in the recycling ecosystem, from the moment it is collected to when it is sorted at Materials Recovery Facilities and in subsequent processing facilities.</p> <h2>Benefits</h2> <p>The ARL allows you to:</p> <ul> <li>reduce the amount of waste going to landfill or being dumped</li> <li>reduce contamination of the recycling stream</li> <li>reuse valuable materials</li> <li>reduce energy and water use</li> <li>reduce environmental impact</li> <li>reduce greenhouse gas emissions.</li> </ul> <h2>Next steps</h2> <p>To find out more, go to the:<a href="https://recyclingnearyou.com.au/arl/">RecyclingNearYou</a> website.</p> </div> Mon, 20 Jul 2020 04:56:33 +0000 simon.wells 3399 at https://www.energy.gov.au Salon and hospitality waste repurposing program https://www.energy.gov.au/rebates/salon-and-hospitality-waste-repurposing-program <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Salon and hospitality waste repurposing program</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/simonwells" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">simon.wells</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 2020-12-08 10:51</span> <div class="field field--name-field-program-url field--type-link field--label-inline"> <h4 class="field__label font-weight-bold mt-3 mb-1">Program:</h4> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://wastefreesystems.com.au/">Waste Free Systems </a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-rebate-location field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline"> <h4 class="field__label font-weight-bold mt-3 mb-1">Location:</h4> <div class='field__items'> <div class="field__item"><a href="/state/act" hreflang="en">ACT</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/state/nsw" hreflang="en">NSW</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/state/nt" hreflang="en">NT</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/state/qld" hreflang="en">Qld</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/state/sa" hreflang="en">SA</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/state/tas" hreflang="en">Tas</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/state/vic" hreflang="en">Vic</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/state/wa" hreflang="en">WA</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The Waste Free Systems program<strong> </strong>is<strong> </strong>free and helps hair and beauty salons and food businesses to reuse, recycle and reduce waste going to landfill.
