Press Release: 1.6 million bags and wrappers in 100 days

Posted by PPRS on February 24, 2016

The Packaging Forum says that 100 days into its Soft Plastic Recycling Project, Aucklanders have dropped off over 10 tonnes of soft plastic packaging at New World, PAK’nSAVE, The Warehouse and selected Countdown stores in Auckland. That’s equivalent to around 1.6 million units of packaging with volumes increasing every week as people get used to collecting the bags at home and dropping them off when they go shopping.
