Upcycling Agricultural Waste Plastic

Out of sight and off the radar. “The challenge agricultural waste plastic collection represents has largely gone unnoticed” says Stephen Webster GM of Integrated Recycling.

But agricultural waste plastic is at industrial proportions.

Historically this waste has gone to landfill or disposed of in other environmentally damaging ways – hardly a contemporary solution.

Waste plastic is a resource.

In fact, it’s a resource that when upcycled out-performs traditional products.

THE MATHS: One tonne of agricultural waste plastics produces 22 Duratrack Railway Sleepers.
MORE MATHS: One kilometre of Duratrack railway sleepers requires 64 tonnes of waste plastics.
