Mildura Regional Waste Management Group is Recycling Awards Finalist

Supplier News

Mildura Regional Waste Management Group has received recognition in their recycling efforts after their selection as finalist in the 2010 Keep Australia Beautiful Victoria Tidy Towns - Sustainable Communities Awards.    

Representatives from Keep Australia Beautiful recently presented the Mildura Regional Waste Management Group with their finalist certificate in the Environmental Innovation category at Integrated Recycling. 

Integrated Recycling is part of the Integrated Packaging Group. 

The nomination was in recognition of the group's focussed efforts in polystyrene recycling -- an endeavour that has seen a sharp reduction in the amount of polystyrene reaching the landfill.  

Over the past two years, Mildura Landfill has received about 4.82 tonnes of polystyrene, which has been sent to Integrated Recycling's plant for reprocessing into various useful products.   

The collected polystyrene is processed and recycled into a range of useful timber-substitute products such as bollards for playgrounds and parks, outdoor furniture, decking as well as vineyard posts among others.  

Polystyrene is a recyclable material that can be reprocessed continuously.
