L'Oréal and Avery Dennison Collaborate to Eliminate Label Waste
Global materials science and manufacturing company, Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE: AVY), leading beauty company both globally and in Australia, L'Oréal Australia, and Australia's leading waste management company, Wasteflex, are collaborating on a recycling programme to deliver zero waste to landfills
Avery Dennison's liner recycling programme, the first of its kind by the company in the South Asia Pacific and Sub-Saharan region, supports the company's sustainability goal to help customers reduce waste from its products.

With our liner recycling programme, brands now have a solution that will enable them to reduce the environmental impact from discarded label liner waste," said Anil K. Sharma, vice president and general manager, Label and Graphic Materials, South Asia Pacific and Sub-Saharan Africa, Avery Dennison. "We are delighted to partner with L'Oréal Australia and Wasteflex on this sustainability journey."
