A) Looking to recycle end-of-use PVC?
Step 1. Contact the product supplier/manufacturer to see if they take back their own product for recycling.
Step 2. Contact the companies listed below. You can also visit http://businessrecycling.com.au/ for recyclers of other plastics or material types.
Step 3. Need further information on whether an end-of-use PVC prodcut is recyclable in Australia? Contact us at the Vinyl Council.
Note: Recycling will succeed when end-of-use material is recovered in a suitable form for reuse in another product. Recyclers want clean, regular and reasonable volumes (>500kg) of consistent material. They do not want spasmodic, irregular and small quantities of PVC contaminated by dirt, metals or other recyclables such as paper, or other plastics.
