Melrose is a signatory of the Australian Packaging Covenant (APC). The APC
is an agreement between companies in the supply chain and all levels of
government to reduce the environmental impacts of consumer packaging.
This is achieved by:
Designing packaging that is more resource efficient and more recyclable
Increasing the recovery and recycling of used packaging from households
and away-from-home sources.
Taking action to reduce the incidence and impacts of litter.
Melrose follows the APC in that it is based on the waste hierarchy: that
is, we place high priority on avoiding and minimising packaging waste, followed
by reuse, recycling, recovery and finally, disposal.
