Costco Joins How2Recycle Label Program
Consumers will soon see the How2Recycle label on some Costco Wholesale Kirkland Signature brand products in stores across the U.S. The retail giant will use the label to make recycling different types of packaging easier.
The standardized label categorizes packaging into a Widely Recycled category, a Check Locally category, a Store Drop-Off category, and a Not Yet Recycled category.
“Costco’s private-label brand encompasses a diverse portfolio of product categories. By joining How2Recycle, Costco is empowering its members to properly prepare a wide array of packaging types and materials for recycling. Costco is well poised to help recover large quantities of material by featuring consistent, accurate recycling messaging on package,” said Caroline Cox, How2Recycle project associate.
Costco will be rolling out the label on a variety of packages including its in-store brand Kirkland Signature Organic Raw Kombucha Ginger Lemonade, Baby Wipes and Facial Wipes.
