Circular Economy

A proud contributor to the Circular Economy

Pakaflex has just commissioned a state of the art plastic film recycler. In partnership with Sustainability Victoria this machine recovers LDPE (recycle code 4, with very high print coverages) and is used to process both internal scrap and wrap returned to us from our customers. Already, this process has been in place for more than a year with one of our major partners – AKD Softwoods. They are returning all their scrap wrap from their packing operations. The recovered material is utilised back into the same Enduratuff™ long life timber protection covers to provide a genuine closed loop or circular economy.We beleive this is one of the few examples of flexible packaging being used in a genuine closed loop.

This investment also creates more than 2 totally new jobs at our main manufacturing facility in Dandenong.
