Support for Global Recycling Day

Coca-Cola Amatil strongly supports the UN Global Recycling Day.

Coca-Cola Amatil strongly supports the UN Global Recycling Day.

As one of Australia’s largest bottlers, Coca-Cola Amatil recognises its responsibility to address the issue of packaging waste and maximise recycling opportunities and the use of recycled materials.

All our bottles and cans in Australia are made from 100 per cent recyclable materials. Coca-Cola Amatil is also a major user of recycled materials, including Mount Franklin 350ml, 400ml, 500ml and 600ml bottles which are 100 per cent recycled plastic – that is, plastic that has had a previous life.

Other recent outcomes include:
  • Removal of plastic drinking straws and stirrers, replaced with biodegradable paper straws;
  • “Light weighting” of plastic bottles to reduce overall plastic resin use;
  • Increased use of recycled plastic in bottles across the non-alcoholic ready to drink portfolio;
  • Support for cost-effective, well-run container deposit schemes in NSW, Qld, SA and ACT;
  • Partnership with Keep Australia Beautiful to educate, inspire and take action on better recycling opportunities.
Coca-Cola Amatil is also a founding supporter of Australia’s 2025 National Packaging Targets:
  • 100% of Australian packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable;
  • 70% of plastic packaging to be recycled or composted;
  • 30% average recycled content to be included across all packaging; and
  • Problematic and unnecessary single-use plastic packaging to be phased out through design, innovation or introduction of alternatives.
At Amatil we’ve heard the community message loud and clear - that unnecessary packaging is unacceptable and we need to reduce the amount entering litter streams, the environment and the oceans.
