Q: What is the solution to excess product packaging?

Ever wondered why biscuits are placed in a non-sealable bag, then on a plastic tray, then in a cardboard box? It’s no secret that excess packaging is becoming more and more abundant. As consumers however, we are becoming more environmentally friendly.

This significant increase in wrapping, then leads to a significant increase in waste produced. Examples of these include:

  • Packages that come in multiple layers including plastic and cardboard
  • Stationery supplies, individually wrapped, in a cardboard box
  • New office equipment such as computers with each component individually wrapped, placed in cardboard box, separated by foam dividers, in a large cardboard box bigger than required

Now, think about the last time you placed an order online. To protect the item in transit, a small clothing item can arrive at your doorstep as such:

As consumers, surely we would not be too pleased if we received an item that appears to be tampered or not securely sealed. Thus, some businesses may not be able to avoid excess packaging. We can however, responsibly handle the disposal of these materials.
 

How do environmentally conscious global citizens tackle this issue?

A: Co-Mingled Recycling.

Although we cannot stop manufacturers and suppliers from using excess packaging, we can control what we do with these materials. Co-Mingled Recycling allows the disposal of all different types of waste in the one bin. Hiring one type of bin allows you to:
  • Save more money: By hiring one bin instead of three.
  • Use less space: By hiring one bin instead of three.
  • Reduce cleaning time: By tossing in one bin instead of three.
With the many benefits of Co-Mingled Recycling, why would you not to want to effectively manage your waste?
Bingo Industries offers an efficient and effective Co-Mingled Recycling service. This is beneficial to households and high-waste industries from cafes to hotel chains.

This sustainably-managed plan allows for a resourceful use and handling of recyclable materials. So, if you cannot avoid purchasing excess packaged items, like a parcel coming from overseas, you can encourage the eco-friendly recycling process.

 

What recyclables can go in a Co-Mingled bin?

Materials of a broad nature can be recycled. The process of sorting can be machine-operated or manual to avoid any toxins being incorrectly handled. Items including food, liquids or sanitary waste cannot be recycled- but parts of their packaging can be.

To narrow it down for you, here is a quick guide of what to dispose in a co-mingled bin and what to be sure to exclude:

What to Toss In?                                    What to Leave Out?
Plastic bottles without the lid The lid
Aluminium cans The liquid
Milk cartons The milk
Glass bottles The alcohol
Juice boxes The juice
Plastic containers The food
Plastic bags The plastic!

BINGO Community Notice C&I EPL

The impacts of recent severe weather events are being experienced industry-wide across the NSW waste supply-chain, with significant delays and reduction of waste services capacity. To assist in easing congestion and delays in commercial & industrial (C&I) and other putrescible waste services, the NSW Environment Protection Agency (EPA) has approved emergency changes to BINGO’s Environment Protection License for our Auburn and Eastern Creek recycling facilities to temporarily accept putrescible C&I waste.

BINGO Trailblazers - Lisa Tizzone

I'm Lisa and I’m the Marketing Manager at BINGO. I completed a Bachelor of Commerce in 2019 at the University of New South Wales majoring in Marketing. A little fun fact about me is that my parents are BIG Elvis fans, so fittingly I’m named after Lisa-Marie Presley. I even had the “privilege” of visiting Graceland in Memphis!
