Recycling round table

Monday, 20 February, 2006

The Sustainable Packaging Alliance's 9th round table, "Recycling Packaging ¬ The Challenges Ahead," is being held on Thursday 9th March 2006 (8:30am ¬ 2:00pm) in Melbourne.

The round table will discuss the current status of collection, sorting and reprocessing systems for recyclable and "˜non-recyclable' packaging materials and the challenges that the packaging industry and governments face in meeting these targets. What actually happens in a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) and how are the different packaging materials processed? What are the gaps and how will they be overcome?

SPA round tables bring together the diversity of stakeholders concerned with, involved in or impacted by packaging supply chains. This round table features round table and plenary discussions and presentations from SKM Recycling, the Plastics and Chemical Industry Association (PACIA), Visy Recycling and the Beverage Industry Environment Council (BIEC). This event will inform packaging stakeholders including: packaging and material suppliers, brand owners, retailers, policy makers, recyclers and waste managers, environmental and supply chain managers, marketers and more.
