Recycling & Waste Management

Today, recycling and the building of a circular economy is a major focus of government, industry, and consumers in Australia and around the world.  So too is effective waste management for those items that cannot be recycled.

Of particular focus is recycling of packaging, and Polesy are active members of APCO, the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation, the body charged by Australian governments with the development and implementation of improved packaging to achieve better outcomes for Australia in terms of the packaging we use and its reusability, recyclability, and end-of-life.

Polesy supports the recycling of many types of products including packaging, textiles, and tyres by supplying fit-for-purpose bags for the collection, sorting, and processing of recyclable items and materials.

We also provide multiple packaging options for waste management, especially construction, medical, and green waste.

Polesy products including Poly Woven Bags, BOPP Laminated Bags, Bulk Bags, and industrial fabrics such as Weed Mat and Silt Fence are made from Polypropylene (PP) which is 100% recyclable, as are our 100% Paper Multiwall Sacks, and Cotton, Poly/Cotton and Polyester Textiles and Bedding products.  And our Hessian and Jute products are biodegradable and compostable.

Our national team of experienced Account Managers have the product knowledge and industry understanding to help you to choose the best packaging for your needs – to improve your sustainability, optimise your operations, protect your products in transport and storage, and represent your brand to your markets through high impact printing design that will make your product stand out.
