PLUMBING INDUSTRY PLASTIC RECYCLING SCHEME
MPA Skills Plumbing and Plastics Industry Pipe Association of Australia (PIPA), in conjunction with industry partners Vinidex and Pipemakers have launched an industry driven PVC and Polyethylene (PE) pipes and fittings recycling scheme in WA.
The objective of the scheme is to educate the apprentice plumbers in WA on the sustainability of plastic pipes and develop the behaviour of appropriate disposal of off-cuts. It also provides an outlet for plumbers in Perth to have a facility to dispose of their PVC and PE plastic pipe off-cuts, diverting them from landfill and recycling them back into new long life plastic pipes.
The collection bins will be located at MPA skills Training facilities:
Maylands campus – PVC and PE collection point
Bayswater campus – PVC collection point
