Circular Plastics Australia is creating a truly circular economy by giving billions of used plastic bottles and containers a new life. Our facilities enable plastic waste to be recycled locally and made into new bottles and packaging, rather than ending up in landfill.

The circular economy

The circular economy transforms the linear consumption model (take-make-waste) into a circular one that keeps products and services in use for longer.
