About Plastic Forests

Plastic Forests, has just been selected as a Westpac Top 20 high potential Business of Tomorrow, from close to 2000 entrants.

David Lindberg, judge and chief executive, Westpac Business Bank, says: “With a clear vision for growth in Australia and overseas, Plastic Forests is continuing to address global sustainability issues. Plastic Forests has been selected as a Westpac Business of Tomorrow because it is significantly impacting Australia’s communities and environment, and facilitating sustainable business practices.”

Plastic Forests Pty Ltd is a business that is making the world a better place. With years of research completed, Plastic Forests is commercialising a unique dry cleaning process which takes contaminated PE plastic films, that are not currently recycled from post food production streams & post-agricultural waste, turning that waste film into a range of recycled plastic products.

We keep plastic as plastic….even back into film products.

Plastic Forests won the coveted 2015 Australian Endeavour Award – Most Innovative Company and the Powercor Moira Shire Excellence in Innovation award 2015.

Plastic Forests was listed in the top 5 waste management stories for 2014 by global “Eco Business” magazine. In addition, Plastic Forests has come to the attention of the United Nations Environment Program Division of Technology, being interviewed in relation to our world first no water recycling technology process that Plastic Forests has invented here in Australia.

Marketing of valued added products is under our trade marked brand “Green Mongrel”. Products include underground cable cover, garden edging, and resin pellets.

Types of plastics we recycle

Polyolefins is the collective description for plastics types that include polyethylene:

LDPE – low density polyethylene

LLDPE -linear low density polyethylene

HDPE -high density polyethylene

PP – polypropylene


Plastic Forests has just received our first grant from the NSW Environmental Trust Innovation in priority problem waste management
Plastic Forest’s project has three key elements:
1. A bulk-a-bag and woven polypropylene recycling facility, processing up to 500,000 plus bags per annum back into resin and locally manufactured products. We aim to have this up and running in June 2018
2. A value adding production line using solar power and the contaminated PE plastic films from our customers.
3. Enhanced collection and distribution in Sydney.

‘This project was supported by the Environmental Trust as part of the NSW EPA’s Waste Less, Recycle More initiative, funded from the waste levy.’

We dry-clean contaminated PE films

Plastic Forests specialises in taking contaminated plastic from the Food Industry and Agriculture.
