TruCycle is a stepwise evaluation of the recyclability or
compostability of product packaging. TruCycle is offered in
a standard or customized format based on client needs.
HOW IT WORKS
COLLECTION: Assess inclusion/exclusion of packaging in community recycling programs.
SORTABILITY: Evaluate packaging’s movement through MRF and probability of inclusion in correct bale.
END MARKETS: Assess compatibility of package design and the marketability of the bale for reprocessors
COLLECTION: Assess material acceptance at community organics programs.
COMPOSTABILITY: Evaluate material compatibility with composter configurations.
END MARKETS: Determine the acceptability of the 90- to 120- day finished compost to end users by evaluating nutrient value, resale value or use.
RRS delivers a detailed account of how compatible a
material is with each life cycle stage of the analysis, along
with a high-level summary in a report card format.
Develop complete understanding of recyclability or compostability of the packaging.
Develop informed internal and external recyclability or compostability communications.
Confirm existing, or influence new, design-for-recyclability or design-for-compostability innovation success.
|Customize the assessment or combine with a screening level life cycle assessment (LCA).|
TruCycle International is based in a location outside of the U.S. and includes a solid waste and recycling overview in addition to the traditional TruCycle assessment.
