Construction Plastics Recycling Scheme expands to 40 locations!

Phase three of the Construction Plastics Recycling Scheme was launched Friday, 19 April 2024, which marks an expansion of the Scheme to more areas across Queensland, including South East Queensland, South West Downs, Wide Bay-Burnett, and Central Queensland.

The expansion aims to continue raising awareness, educating, and inspiring action on how organisations can reduce waste going to landfill by recycling PVC off-cuts.

The initiative is supported by the Queensland Government’s Recycling and Jobs Fund.

How does the scheme work?

Working collaboratively with the industry, 40 collection bins will be located at multiple sites across Queensland, providing alternative outlets for PVC off-cuts to be discarded. The off-cuts collected in these bins over this period will be audited and data recorded. The scheme aims to educate and change behaviours when it comes to the disposal of PVC off-cuts. Providing easy and accessible drop off points will help to divert waste from landfill, so that the off-cuts can be recycled into a new long-life recyclable pipe.
