REDcycle Update 25 NOVEMBER 2022

25 November 2022

As of today, the ACCC has granted interim authorisation with conditions to enable Coles Group Limited, Woolworths Group Limited and ALDI Stores (together, the Participants) and any Program Partners to engage in certain conduct in connection with an industry-led taskforce, to explore solutions to address the immediate effects of the suspension of the REDcycle program. 

APCO will be sharing the findings of its review and will continue supporting the process.

APCO thanks all the contributors able to make themselves available to this process on such short notice - in what has been a very busy time for all. 

APCO also wishes to acknowledge the efforts brands and supermarkets have made to communicate in a prompt and flexible manner to provide effective consumer guidance under very challenging and quickly evolving circumstances.  

APCO encourages Members to continue to communicate via websites and in store communications about the current challenges in soft plastics recycling.
