Meeting the environmental challenge for
Package Source Reduction

Is recycling the solution to the crisis of quickly diminishing landfill space? At present, the efficient collection and sortation of plastics waste are major investment needed to build up a viable recycling infrastructure will cost many millions of dollars. No surprise then, that the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries estimates that only 1% of all plastics were recovered and reused in the 1980's.

What of the potential afterlife of these recycled plastics? Many companies, food and health related, for example, are precluded from fully utilizing recycled materials for reasons related to product liability concerns. Products made of recycled materials also face questions of performance capability versus containers made of virgin material. As a leader and innovator in plastic packaging for over 45 years, Container Corporation of Canada is actively exploring the opportunities available to concerned manufacturers seeking product applications for recycled resin. While we mutually work towards the ongoing utilization of recycled materials, our planet's ever worsening predicament called for the thorough investigation of alternative packaging like the ENVIROTAINER® Combination Package which aggressively implements source reduction.

Your Container Corporation of Canada Representative is prepared to review your individual packaging needs, and demonstrate how the ENVIROTAINER® can provide solutions to the Source Reduction issues facing both your company and your customer in these environmental conscious times.

The Environmental Protection Agency states the concept of Source Reduction must stand at the forefront of industry efforts to deal with the growing waste disposal problem.

A prime example of industry's commitment to the concept comes from the Source Reduction Council of the Coalition of Northeastern Governors (GONEG). The Council's Preferred Packaging Guidelines list the minimization of packaging as one of four major guidelines in the designing, production, and use the product packaging.

Container Corporation of Canada, a leader in the production of environment-friendly packaging, has a ready answer for decision makers whose mission will be to secure packaging that meets the environmental mandate of Package Source Reduction. The Container Corporation of Canada ENVIROTAINER® Combination Package is a durable, lightweight package offering an exciting opportunity to manufacturers concerned with the environment, as well as an important selling tool for the Customer sales force: Source Reduction means tangible saving for the end-user

The ENVIROTAINER® Insert, molded of low density polyethylene, delivers the highest refuse-to-space ratio among DOT/UN packages. The ENVIROTAINER® nesting feature allows insertion of eight 5 gallon Inserts into the same space where only one DOT 34 container can be placed. While 5 gallon 90 mil plastic pail generates nearly three pounds of waste material, an ENVIROTAINER® Insert of comparable volume slashes that figure by more than 80%! Waste reduction of this magnitude offers meaningful cost savings to end-users responsible for the disposal of your product packaging.

The rapid use of landfill space has meant increasingly higher costs for increasingly limited access. Research by the National Solid Wastes Management Association found that landfill "tip-fees" have increased almost 150% during the 1980's. An analysis of your company's fees will clearly demonstrate why producers and users of liquids and dry flowables, once packaged in rigid containers, are eagerly pursing the cost advantages of the flexible ENVIROTAINER® Insert.

During the same period landfill tip fees were on the rise, costs related to the incineration of waste materials were rising at the even higher rate of 209%.
