The Australian Council of Recycling (ACOR) has laid out a roadmap that starts with harmonising bins nationally ($28M), upgrading sorting centres ($33M), developing more factories to produce paper pulp and plastic pellets ($57M), using raw materials for infrastructure ($32M) and burning waste into energy.

ACOR’s strategic vision on strategic focus areas and where upgrades are needed is a powerful catalyst for discussions on how Australia can get serious about what we do with our own unwanted plastics, how we can work with waste to energy operators to understand the value of our excess product, and how we can market our sector as a vehicle to educate the community on great recycling behaviour.
