They’re joining with us: trolleys are being made from recycled milk bottles, toner cartridges are going into asphalt and green steel, and in my home town of Albury, a company called Plastic Forests is making plastic fence posts, using soft plastic, to help with bushfire recovery” says Sussan Ley, Minister for the Environment in an address to the House of Representatives.
