Cleanaway to recycle Penrite’s award winning new Enviro Box


April 7, 2017


Cleanaway are proud to announce our partnership with Penrite to recycle their award-winning new dispensing system that decreases packaging wastage, increases bulk lubricant storage capacity, increases workplace safety and saves money.

The Penrite Enviro Box™ oil packaging and dispensing system was unveiled at the Australian Automotive Aftermarket (AAA) Expo in Melbourne and received the Most Innovative New Packaging Award. The awards – presented for innovation and market leading product development – singled out the Penrite Oil Enviro Box™ for marrying both functionality with sustainability in their product.

Penrite Enviro Box™ is a ‘bag-in-a-box’ concept; the lubricant is packaged in a bladder bag that is housed inside a recyclable cardboard box, as opposed to the traditional plastic drum. For workshop customers, Penrite has partnered with Cleanaway to provide a simple option for disposing of the empty Enviro Box™ bladder bags. Find out more about the process here.

The Penrite Enviro Box™ cardboard boxes are 100% recyclable. Considering the many thousands of 20 litre plastic drums disposed of each year, the Enviro Box™ will result in an 85% reduction in landfill waste per unit produced. Toby Dymond, General Manager Penrite Oil, is enthusiastic about the prospective impact that this program will have on the environment.

“We’re excited to partner with Cleanaway to make sure that the bladder bags are responsibly collected and recycled, so the environmental impact of the use of plastic drums in the automotive industry can be mitigated”, Mr Dymond said.

Mark Smith, National Sales & Value Chain Manager for Cleanaway said, “It is a great initiative for Penrite to take a proactive step in making package recycling widely accessible for the automotive industry.”

“Penrite, proudly Australian and family owned since 1926, is a natural fit with Cleanaway. This is an exciting partnership for us as we can utilise our national network to help Penrite deliver this environmentally sustainable product.” Mr Smith added.

“As an Australian-owned company with over 50 years’ experience supporting Australian businesses, we’re proud to offer this collection service to Penrite customers, helping workshops to reduce their waste and work towards making a sustainable future possible,” Mr Smith stated.

“Penrite is proud to be the first Australian oil company to introduce the Enviro Box™, which we believe will reduce the use of plastic drums significantly, representing a major step forward in our industry being more environmentally responsible”, Mr Dymond said.

Interested customers will be provided with a Cleanaway collection bin. The empty bags are then deposited into the bin and once the bags are ready for collection customers simply call Cleanaway on 13 13 39. Collection will start in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth before a later roll out to regional areas.
