Construction is now underway on Australia’s largest end-to-end PET recycling facility in Albury-Wodonga, which will see the equivalent of around one billion plastic bottles recycled each year.

The raw plastic material that Circular Plastics Australia PET will recycle each year will be used to produce more than 20,000 tonnes of new recycled PET bottles and food packaging.

“This new facility for PET plastic will recycle the containers collected through the NSW Return and Earn scheme and Cleanaway’s Material Recovery Facilities, helping create a domestic circular economy,” said Vik Bansal, Cleanaway CEO and managing director. 

This is good news for the Container deposit schemes and all the bottles they will collect.
