Nestlé, Walmart, Coke, Pepsi and Unilever Support Recycling Network
The companies have backed the Collective Recycling Project, which aims to recycle about 1,200 metric tons of waste per year through the installation of five recycling centers in the capital of Santiago.
The centers, managed by Triciclos, an organization that specializes in recycling and sustainable consumption, can each recycle about 20 different types of materials such as glass, PET plastic, aluminium, paper, cardboard and clothes. In turn, the companies will receive energy recovery data on each type of waste.
Nestlé says it will use this information to redesign its product packaging to reduce waste and improve the environmental performance of its products.
Last month Coca-Cola, Ford, Nike, Danone, H.J. Heinz, Nestlé, Procter & Gamble and Unilever, along with World Wildlife Fund, formed the Bioplastic Feedstock Alliance to support the development of plastics made from plant material.
