Recycle your label waste
Contrary to older ways of thinking, liners and matrix —paper and film, siliconized or not— are recyclable. But until now, a worldwide lack of local, cost-effective recyclers has prohibited many converters and end-users from recycling, resulting in millions of tons of label waste being incinerated or going to landfills every year.
Avery Dennison recycling services are filling the gap in label-waste recycling by providing a global network of processors who will transport and recycle your used liners and matrix at the same cost or less as what you’re paying now. In many cases, your waste will be processed into new liners and matrix, improving the availability of recycled materials for our industry and our customers.

Labelling materials containing recycled content are now a great choice for label converters and brand owners, thanks to careful selection from post-consumer waste streams and modern paper manufacturing processes.
