More than just the lining
Despite variance in the plastic used for packaging, including lined paperboard, unless separation and collection logistics are also in place, the reality is that most bio-based takeaway packaging is headed for landfill.
This is because of several factors, but primarily access to collection for commercial composting facilities is limited and packaging is most often sent to landfill, read more here.
That is why Detpak champion recycling as the best end of life solution for single use packaging to ensure valuable resources live again. We specialise in packaging designed for recycling.
As paper and board converters, we also recognise the value of paper fibre and have developed an industry leading solution called RecycleMe™; a next generation lining featuring 40% less plastic, that is easily removed to preserve as much fibre as possible.
Paper products with RecycleMe™ lining are designed for standard recycling systems and qualify for kerbside recyclability2. For paper cup products, kerbside recycling is problematic as takeaway cups do not behave like ‘paper or cardboard’ in a Materials Recovery Facility and are often sent to landfill at this sorting stage, read more here.
