tool on its website to help its converter customers
divert and process scrap. The tool is located at:
Many of our customers are actively improving
their sustainability footprint,” said Rosalyn Bandy, Sus-
tainability Manager,Avery Dennison Materials Group.
We have created this matrix recycling tool as a re-
sponse to those looking to reduce their impact by
sending less waste to landfills.”
The interactive map features a directory that indi-
cates locations of non-landfill operations or energy-
from-waste facilities. Most of these operations
process discarded pressure sensitive scrap materials
generated by label presses into clean, renewable en-
ergy sources.
One such method is fuel pellets, which can be a di-
rect substitute for coal but with a lower carbon and
overall emissions footprint. The interactive tool is
based on Avery Dennison’s own information and was
developed in collaboration with key converters, recy-
clers and key channel partners.
