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> <ul> <li>Reduce the amount of waste going to landfill or being dumped</li> <li>Stop 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>More information is available at:</p> <p><a href="https://recyclingnearyou.com.au/arl/">RecyclingNearYou</a> website</p> <p> </p> </div> Mon, 20 Jul 2020 04:56:33 +0000 simon.wells 3399 at https://www.energy.gov.au Grants to reduce packaging waste for organisations https://www.energy.gov.au/rebates/grants-reduce-packaging-waste-organisations <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Grants to reduce packaging waste for organisations</span> <div class="field field--name-field-program-title field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Program name</div> <div class="field__item">Investment Support Grants – Packaging</div> </div> <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">Thu, 2020-07-02 13:45</span> <div class="field field--name-field-program-url field--type-link field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Program URL</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/Grants-and-funding/Investment-Support-Grants-Packaging">www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/Grants-and-funding/Investment-Support-Grants-Pack…</a></div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><h2>Overview</h2> <p>The <strong>Investment Support Grants – Packaging</strong> program provides grants of up to $50,000 to eligible small to medium enterprises, not-for-profits and social enterprises who use, manufacture and/or recycle packaging to invest in projects that reduce packaging waste going to landfill. Financial co-contribution is required at a ratio of 1:1.</p> <p>Eligible projects must first seek to achieve one or a combination of the following:</p> <ul> <li>reduce generation of packaging waste</li> <li>increase or improve recovery of packaging waste</li> <li>manufacture packaging using recovered materials</li> <li>remanufacture using packaging waste</li> </ul> <p>Eligible projects must also seek funding support for one or more of the following activities:</p> <ul> <li>piloting new systems or technologies</li> <li>acquiring/upgrading plant and equipment</li> <li>expanding facilities to enable increased resource recovery on existing premises</li> <li>enabling works to house new plant equipment</li> <li>research, development and demonstration projects will be considered for funding if the applicant can demonstrate the diversion potential from landfill in Victoria</li> </ul> <p>Applications close 5 March 2021 or earlier if the funding is fully subscribed or closed.</p> <h2>Benefits</h2> <ul> <li>reduce waste going to landfill </li> <li>reuse and recycle waste</li> <li>reduce energy use</li> <li>reduce greenhouse gas emissions </li> </ul> <h2>Key eligibility</h2> <p>Small to medium enterprises, not-for-profits or social enterprises are eligible to apply for funding.
