    Nestlé trials kerbside recycling

    Nestlé and recycling company iQ Renew are trialling kerbside recycling with over 100,000 Australian homes.

    The trial aims to see soft plastics collected kerbside and diverted from landfill.

    There’s an increasing consumer demand for improved recycling, therefore the trial is aiming to find a broadly applicable way to collect, sort and process soft plastics.

    “We’ve designed the trial so that at the front end, it will support householders to pre-sort their soft plastic and get it into a recycling stream, while behind the scenes, we’ll test using the sorted soft plastics as a resource in a range of different manufacturing processes,” says iQ Renew CEO Danial Gallagher.

    The project will commence with a pilot of 2000 households, then plans to expand to over 100,000 households later in the year, processing around 750 tonnes of soft plastic that would otherwise be sent to landfill.

    Locations for the trial are currently under consideration.
