Recently we have also pledged to the Victorian Government Take 2 initiative which aims to reach net zero emissions by 2050. As a part of Sancell’s pledge we have committed to reviewing and setting waste reduction targets in all areas of our business including manufacturing, administration, freight & logistics and warehousing.
Recycling at SancellSancell Packaging products are predominantly manufactured using high quality, Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE4). LDPE is a 100% recyclable product and can be re-milled and repurposed into bollards, decking, fencing, signage and a myriad of other outdoor and industrial products. 80% of ‘first-grade’ waste generated within our manufacturing process is recycled with our own in-house recycle machine and fed straight back into many of our stock line products. Our Recovery bubble range as well as our Armour Padded Mailer bags contain a minimum of 15% recycled material in every product, guaranteed.
LDPEAny ‘second-grade’ LDPE material scrapped during our manufacturing processes which is not suitable for in-house recycling is collected by a local, third party polymer recycler. This product us then re-milled and converted into small pellets of resin. These reworked polymers are then sold on to make a range of films and new generation plastic products.
It’s worth noting also that NO Sancell products contain nylon. Nylon can render LDPE non-recyclable.
