PIPA Recycling Program

Our commitment to the Australia community is simple – we aim to recycle the maximum amount of usable plastic pipe.

Due to the low volume of plastic pipes in the waste streams, our industry is always looking at ways to work with collaboratively with waste management companies, major distributors of products and specific suppliers/clients to collect volumes of plastic pipes viable for designated recycling.

PIPA working with a variety of partners has established a Plastic Pipes Recycling Program. By working with PIPA members and established plastic recyclers we can provide information and locations for end users to deliver their no longer needed pipes, diverting from landfill, and contributing to our circular economy.
