Information about Rethink Recycling

Rethink Recycling (RRC) stands at the forefront of a greener future, driven by our passion for sustainability and social responsibility. Together, we endeavour to reshape perceptions about recycling. Making a positive impact on the planet, and nurturing the prosperity of every member of our diverse community. We’re a not-for-profit driving the development of waste plastic remanufacturing and inspiring change through community education.

The education program guides students through the basics of plastic types, uses and life cycles are covered, the waste crisis associated with single-use plastics and how we can solve the associated problems this brings. Participants will learn the story of plastic, the journey of a lid, and be introduced to sustainability and circular economy principles.

Education sessions will also cover the various recycling processes, micro-machines involved and will conclude with a hands-on experience. Through this experience, students get to follow a lid from collection, washing, sorting, shredding and remanufacturing into a new finished functional product.

Come and visit near the gardens to see the machines in action.
