A Yennora recycling facility has received an $800,000 grant for their dynamic and innovative approach to waste management.

Mulgoa MP Tanya Davies recently met with Plastic Forests managing director David Hodge to congratulate the business on the achievement. The funding is part of the Baird Government’s Innovation in Priority Problem Wastes Management Grants Program, which aims to support projects that provide new recycling infrastructure solutions.

“Businesses such as Plastic Forests are an exemplar model for others to follow in utilising new approaches to tackle contemporary waste and recycling management problems and challenges,” Ms Davies said.

The company is known for its unique dry cleaning process, which takes unrecycled Polyethylene contaminated plastic films from the food and agricultural industries, and turns them into various recycled plastic products.

The Yennora facility processes more than 500,000 bags per annum.
