TRG Introduces Curbside Recyclable Packaging & Partners with SUNMI


TRG, the global managed solutions provider focused on enterprise mobility, point of sale and payments, has introduced fully curbside recyclable packaging solutions as part of its commitment to sustainability. TRG offers a packaging solution to enterprises across the globe who are committed to reducing their environmental impact.

With facilities across the United States, Canada and Europe, TRG sustainably ships and deploys technology for more than 5,000 customers and 10 million devices using 100% recyclable materials. All TRG shipping components—labels, adhesives, liners, cores and shipping boxes—can be placed with other paper products and recycled together with no special handling, creating a fully encompassed recycling solution.

These environmentally friendly solutions are readily available to TRG customers who are dedicated to achieving net zero waste. In compliance with all TLMI LRP-2 standards for paper-to-paper recycling, TRG packaging labels use a customized adhesive with unique green capabilities. Both the adhesive and liner used on TRG’s paper labels feature a one-of-a[1]kind micro layer of silicone that thoroughly complies with the mandated certification. 

Even when combined with other paper products, the label can be cleanly recycled. To classify as curbside recyclable, both the packaging and label must use compatible materials. Labelled packages can typically be recycled if the label content and surface coverage are a low enough ratio to the overall corrugated packaging material. 

However, most standard labels contain high levels of hazardous materials that can disturb sorting or recycling processes and cause yield loss and/or quality issues. “The adoption of fully curbside recyclable packaging sets us apart as a leader in the transition to net zero waste within the industry,” said Sean Kennedy, TRG President. “This new standard offers our customers solutions that align with their values and reinforces our commitment to serve as a true partner."
