Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) Popular ‘Tools to meet the 2025 National Packaging Targets: PREP & ARL’ training course heads to Western Australia for the first time in October

+ CLEANAWAY MATERIALS RECYCLING FACILITY VISIT

  • Is your business doing enough to ensure that 100% of your packaging is reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025?
  • Have you audited your current packaging for recyclability?
  • Have you started using the Packaging Recyclability Evaluation Portal (PREP) during your design process?
  • Are you looking for a way to validate your on-pack recyclability labelling?
  • If a consumer picked up your product, would they easily understand which bin to put it in?
  • Are you shifting your packaging design to incorporate the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL)?

If you answered no to any of these questions, then this training course is for you.

So where do you start? This training course will help attendees to better understand what tools are available, how to use them, why they are needed and how they link to the 2025 National Packaging Targets.

Attendees will start the training course by visiting the Cleanaway Materials Recycling Facility to obtain a realistic view of the current recycling capabilities in Australia. Participants will have the opportunity to see the post sort room, Glass processing, the Optical sorter, Magnet, the Eddy Current and camera views of the tipping area, excavator, metering bins, infeed belts, pre-sort area and the screens.

Moving then into the classroom, you will learn about the APCO Recycling Label Program and consumer recycling behaviours. Attendees will then deep-dive in to the purpose of PREP, gain an understanding of the governance and data collection process behind PREP, review samples and material templates and work through sample assessment templates. Attendees will be able to undertake a hands-on interactive session using PREP to complete an evaluation, review a report and understand the reasons behind the assessment.

The AIP ‘Tools to meet the 2025 National Packaging Targets: PREP & ARL’ training course will help attendees to understand how to more accurately use PREP and the ARL including:

• How to complete a PREP evaluation

• How to convert PREP outcomes to an ARL artwork

• How to apply the ARL on-pack correctly
