In July the Packaging Forum announced a new initiative to introduce recycling bins so that shoppers can take back their used soft plastic bags to supermarkets and retail premises.
Today the contract for servicing stores in Auckland was awarded to Abilities Group.
Peter Fraher, Managing Director said:-
We are delighted to partner with The Packaging Forum and REDCycle providing collections from stores, baling the soft plastics ready for recycling. Abilities is the very epitome of sustainability. We were established to help drive social change with respect to employment for people with disabilities. Our operational focus is on helping reduce the environmental impact of products and their packaging and we operate within a traditional business model providing customer services at commercial rates.”
