Avery Dennison expands PET recycling program in Europe

October 14, 2013

Avery Dennison has expanded its PET recycling program with the addition of two new collection facilities in Europe. Waste PET liners can now be sold directly to Avery Dennison’s recycling partner Morssinkhof Rymoplast, either at its main plant in Zeewolde (the Netherlands) or at collection facilities in Lichtenvoorde (the Netherlands) and Przeczno (Poland).

“Our program reflects our longstanding commitment to facilitate easy and effective recycling of PET release liner,” says Stephan Reis, who is responsible for sustainability at Avery Dennison Materials Group Europe.

With these two new facilities, more brand owners across Europe can directly benefit from the Avery Dennison recycling program. Quantities as low as 500kg are accepted – far less than the current 5-ton minimum quantity for waste pickup. Morssinkhof Rymoplast will reimburse brand owners directly with the material’s value.
