$9 million investment in plastic recycling – AustraliaPosted on September 27, 2022 by DrRossH in Plastic Recycling
More plastic will be recycled and turned into new products in New South Wales thanks to $9 million funding to support businesses transform their operations and access the latest plastic recycling technology.
“At the moment, NSW produces about 800,000 tonnes of plastic waste every year, and about 10 per cent is recycled. That figure should be much higher and I want to see plastic being repurposed and reused as many times as possible, rather than ending up in landfill or the environment.
“Through this $9 million program, we’re giving eligible businesses the support they need to recycle and reuse more plastic when making new products.”
