PET Recyclable Plastics

PET Recyclable Plastics

At Centaur Packaging we are trying to reduce plastics in our range. But in some areas of Australia due to Compostable facilitys not being available Recycling is still the best option. 

Whilst the feedstocks for PET are petroleum-based, it is a highly energy-efficient packaging material. This is thanks largely to PET’s exceptional capacity-to-weight ratio, which means that more product can be put in less packaging and suppliers can save on fuel costs during transport. Compared to other transparent disposables such as glass and other plastics, PET has a far more favorable environmental impact during production. In terms of disposal, PET can simply be put into a plastic waste stream to be recycled. 

Items such as clear cups, lids and containers are low-cost, both financially and environmentally, and high quality. To be used for cold food only.


We have a quality range of packaging products for retail use.
