recycling bulka bags plastic forests

Woven Polypropylene

Plastic Forests is able to recycle woven polypropylene such as bulka bags, flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBC), big bags or bulk bags and smaller woven polypropylene bags, even those contaminated with a range of dry residues such as salt, paper, flour and organic materials.

We rescue from landfill, recycle and reprocess woven polypropylene into resin for the plastics industry, or transform it into a range of valued added, recycled products.This enables businesses to achieve their sustainability and ‘zero waste to landfill’ goals, whilst creating a circular economy for used woven polypropylene.

Woven Polypropylene BagsBulk bags that have contained explosives, hazardous materials, carbon black, rocks, rock dust, fish food, molasses etc.

Please note we are currently not seeking any PP.  We can only accept woven polypropylene for recycling if an equivalent volume is purchased as finished recycled products.

In order to efficiently transport and process the bags, they must be baled, or folded neatly, compressed and strapped to a pallet.

Not all areas in Australia can be serviced, and charges apply. Currently there is a waiting list for our recycling service in parts of NSW and Victoria.

At this stage we are unable to service one off collections unless the film is baled and a full truck load (fees and charges apply).

NSW Government Grant Plastic Forests

This project was made possible with the assistance of a grant from the Environmental Trust as part of the NSW EPA’s ‘Waste Less Recycle More’ $802 million initiative. The initiative was funded from the waste levy and aims to improve the management of waste and promote recycling innovation.
