Recycle Mate aligns closely with the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL) in most instances because the ARL is based on a high level of kerbside acceptance for packaging to be deemed recyclable. If, however, a local recycling initiative doesn’t align with the ARL, Recycle Mate will include information that is factually correct for a given program or geography. The Australian Council of Recycling (ACOR) works closely with APCO to support positive packaging recovery.
