About us

Circular Plastics Australia was formed by a unique industry partnership determined to provide more sustainable packaging solutions. We have leveraged the unique skills and complementary expertise of each like minded joint venture partner to build scaled end-to-end solutions that will successfully accelerate a local circular economy.

Our vision

To positively impact our environment, community and economy through onshore sustainable plastics recycling partnerships.

Our joint ventures

For many years, Australia has lacked the local processing capacity to manage waste collected through kerbside collections and Container Deposit Schemes (CDS). Prior to China’s waste import bans and more recently, Australia’s plastic export bans, most of this recyclable material was sent offshore.

Circular Plastics Australia is changing this.

We are building the most advanced recycling infrastructure in the region to ensure that traceable, certified, locally-collected and processed food-grade and non food-grade recycled resin is available to Australasian manufactures.

Our footprint

To date we have build three new world-class facilities that will recycle more than 60,000 tonnes of post consumer plastic packaging into high quality resins (including food grade) each year.


The recycled resin will replace local and imported virgin resin in the manufacturing of new packaging.

It’s a complete closed loop approach.

Our technology and innovation

Circular Plastics Australia is accelerating the plastics circular economy by investing in world-class technology and platforms that unlock the value of post-consumer and post-industrial plastic waste.


Our state-of-the-art near infrared (NIR) sorting, washing, extrusion and decontamination processing technology produces the highest quality, locally sourced recycled resins at scale.

Circular Plastics Australia sites are Food and Drug Administration (FDA)/European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) approved and Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) quality compliant to allow us to lead the way in food-safe recycled resins.
