Sustainable packaging

We understand our customers want us to reuse packaging and to make it easier for them to recycle. We also know that packaging plays a key role in protecting products during transport, extending product life, keeping food safe and reducing food waste.

Look out for the ARL logo on Coles Own Brand products for guidance on how to dispose of the packaging. 

Recycle it right

At Coles, we're working towards all Own Brand product packaging being 100% recyclable, reuseable or compostable by 2025. 

We are striving to roll out the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL) and all Coles Own Brand packaging will carry the ARL by 2025. The ARL provides guidance on what packaging components can be disposed of according to different waste streams.
