Minister commits to make all Australia packaging reusable or recyclable


THE government has made a huge commitment to eliminate landfill-found packaging in all Australian products by 2025.ALL Australian packaging will be re-usable or recyclable into other purposes by 2025 under bold plan to rescue us from being smothered by our own waste.

Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg today called the issue urgent and important as he met with state counterparts and local government to discuss solutions.

Governments pledged to increase recycling efforts by using waste for road and construction and to limit food leftovers.And the packaging industry has agreed to, within seven years, use only materials which are compostable, reusable or recyclable.This would remove one of the biggest sources of untreatable waste, and ordinary Australians also will have to change habits and not just fill the recycling bin on their kerb.
