Pact Group assists Fonterra Close the Recycling Loop
Pact Group subsidiaries Astron and Auckland Drum are working closely with dairy giant Fonterra to help close the loop for their Anchor LightProof™ milk bottle range in New Zealand. Every year Astron collect tens of thousands of Anchor milk bottles. The bottles are put through an intensive cleaning and washing process prior to conversion into recycled plastic resin. The recycled resin is then used to manufacture underground cable covers and the recycling bins used in Fonterra’s ‘Milk for Schools’ and ‘Paper4Trees’ programmes; both encourage school aged kids to recycle.
