Environment Protection Authority Victoria’s (EPA) investigation of soft plastics storage has uncovered another warehouse of stockpiled material, as part of the suspended REDcycle program.

 The investigation has uncovered about 3000 tonnes of stored waste soft plastics across the ten sites identified to date. EPA is providing guidance and clear regulatory requirements to the businesses involved to ensure they improve their practices and comply with the law. 

In December, the EPA said the soft plastics found in the Melbourne warehouses were thought to have come from outside of Victoria and that additional sites could exist across Victoria and the country containing tonnes of material.
