“The facility will reimagine domestic manufacturing and recycling, and our investment in building this plant is central to Pact’s strategy, which is to lead the plastics circular econ- omy in Australia,” said Sanjay Dayal, Pact Group CEO.
The project was made possi- ble with the assistance of almost $5 million from the Environ- mental Trust as part of the NSW government’s Waste Less, Recy- cled More initiative.
It is funded from the waste levy, with the support of the Department of Regional NSW and the federal government’s Recy- cling Modernisation Fund. ■
