Circular economy

Plastic waste, processing and recycling

GT Recycling plays an important part in Victoria's circular economy. The team at GT Recycling champion sustainability, and have strived to innovate and improve Australia's circular economy over many years. Plastic is a valuable resource, which can be diverted away from landfill, towards manufacturing of sustainable products. These products can then, at end-of-life, be recycled and continue their role within the circular economy. 

What is a circular economy?

A circular economy continually seeks to reduce the environmental impacts of production and consumption, while enabling economic growth through more productive use of natural resources.

It allows us to avoid waste with good design and effective recovery of materials that can be reused. 

It promotes more efficient business models that encourage intense and efficient product use, such as sharing products between multiple users, or supplying a product as a service that includes maintenance, repair and disposal.

The value people obtain from the resources used to create goods and services increases.
It transforms our linear economy mindset—take, use and throw away—and fosters innovation and productivity that invigorates existing businesses and creates new ones, delivering more jobs and more growth for local, regional, state and global economies.
