In addition, as part of our commitment to the Australian Packaging Covenant, FIX-A-TAP has implemented a Buy Recycled Policy that ensures that FIX-A-TAP will:

  • Purchase products and materials with recycled content whenever deemed practicable and environmentally beneficial.  

  • Substitute existing products and materials with recycled content whenever deemed practicable and environmentally beneficial. 

  • Require our contractors and suppliers to be accountable for their products and/or materials that are supplied and to encourage the use of recycled materials.

find out why some of our plastic product packaging is listed as unrecycable. 

As part of our commitment to the Australian Packaging Covenant we intentionally switched our main manufacturer from PVC to PET plastic blisters as part of our efforts to be environmentally friendly. 

PET plastic is usually considered a recyclable plastic in Australia, however unfortunately according to the advice from Planet Ark, the recycling plants in Australia cannot accept lightweight plastics as they will enter the paper stream at the MRF (Materials Recovery Facility), and will be discharged as a waste.  For this reason, our Australasian Recycling Labels are required to list these plastic blisters as non-recyclable.

Some of our larger PET plastic blisters are also classified as not-recyclable, due to non-paper items greater than 200 mm in two dimensions being incorrectly passed through to the paper stream at an Australian MRF.

The Australasian Recycling Label (ARL), is an evidence-based labelling system which takes details such as these into consideration, and provides easy-to-understand recycling information for packaging. It shows what needs to be done with each piece of a package to dispose of it in the correct way.  FIX-A-TAP are committed to adding the ARL logos to all packaging as soon as possible.

Visit arl.org.au for more information on recycling labels.
