This year, Walex debuted an industry-first recyclable packaging initiative with our packaging supplier. The first product we switched to the new pouch was our Bio-Active Septic Tank Treatment, but we plan to package all of our RV and Marine drop-in products into this eco-friendly packaging by the end of 2022.
The recyclable packages are stamped with the How2Recycle.info seal, meaning the material is guaranteed to be recycled if appropriately deposited by the consumer. How2Recycle.info is a program that aims to bring clarity to the recycling process by standardizing instructions and labels.
Bio-Active Septic Tank Treatment packaging is labeled as Store Drop-off, meaning the consumer can drop off into a local plastic bag recycling bin rather than recycling it curbside. These bins are located at many retail stores, including Lidl, Target, Walmart, and Wegmans. Just ensure the package is clean and dry before placing it in the bin.
According to How2Recycle.info, the bag material can be made into synthetic lumber for decking, park benches, or recycled directly into another bag.
“Walex takes tremendous pride in developing products that are biodegradable and eco-friendly,” said Bill Williams, President of Walex. “Moving into sustainable packaging is the logical option to ensure we are good stewards of the environment and industries we serve.”
