Non-recyclable packaging

Certain hard plastics aren’t recyclable. V (vinyl) or PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is tough and weathers well, so it is commonly used for piping, siding, and similar applications. PVC is cheap, so it’s found in plenty of products and packaging. Because chlorine is part of PVC, its manufacture can result in the release of highly dangerous dioxins.

It is found in shampoo bottles, cooking oil bottles, blister packaging, wire jacketing, siding, windows and piping, among others, and cannot be recycled via the commingled or hard plastics bin. Wanless can help manage any non-recyclable packaging needs your business has.

Our vision goes deeper than recycling

A staggering 9 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the world’s oceans each year, and land-based waste is the greatest polluter. This ocean debris affects about 700 marine species, some of which are now endangered.

To help turn the tide on plastic pollution, Wanless eco(logical) is investing in Australia’s oceans.
