Sticker Liner Take Back Program

We have launched a Take Back Program for EcoEnclose liners!

What is a liner? It is the coated backing sheet of a sticker or label. Our 100% Recycled Custom Branded Sticker liners are made with supercalendered kraft paper with a coating of silicone to enable the release of the stickers. These items are very difficult to recycle, and are accepted by "Hard to Recycle" waste management facilities, label manufacturers and producers of alternative fuel sources. The Tag & Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI) provides detailed resources for liner and matrix recycling here.

Liners are not recyclable with curbside pickup, and it is difficult for small and medium sized businesses to find the time and resources to recycle their liners and other hard to recycle waste they produce. So we are proud to announce that we can now recycle the liners for our customers. It's simple and easy, just follow the steps below!

  1. Save the mailer/box you receive your stickers or labels in. 
  2. As you use your stickers and labels, put the CLEAN liners in the packaging to send back to us. Please make sure to remove the matrix (the material left on the liner after you use the stickers) or any adhesive material that remains on your liner.
  3. When you are ready, contact us for a return shipping label to send your package to our warehouse at 280 South Taylor, Suite 200; Louisville, CO 80027. Contact us via support@ecoenclose.com, 888.445.6575, or via chat. Please include your name and address, and the dimensions and weight of the package.
  4. We will send these to a TLMI recognized facility that takes back liners for reuse or fuel. 

We have structured our Liner Take Back Program to minimize waste. This is why we are asking you to save and reuse your original packaging, rather than our sending out single use packaging to store and ship these liners. If you aren't able to save your original packaging, you can use any other packaging you have on hand, or contact us and we will send you a mailer!

Limitations: 

  • For US and Canadian customers only.
  • For Canadian customers, this program is for full custom sticker orders of 1000 units or more.  
  • Please only send us the liners from your EcoEnclose Labels and Stickers.
  • This program is for full custom sticker orders. We do not take back liners for sample sticker orders because the ecological benefit of recycling this small volume of liners is lower than the carbon footprint of shipping them back to our warehouse.
