Specialist Recycling Projects
An industry initiative utilising a recycling levy on
agricultural chemicals to ensure the responsible recycling of the
drums containing them, drumMUSTER is now working well in Western
Australia despite travelling down a rocky road in the beginning.
CLAW Environmental is the major drumMUSTER processor in the state
after impressing both drumMUSTER and local shire councils with its
customer service and innovative mobile drum shredder.
Expanded Polystyrene Collection Centre
CLAW Environmental is Western Australia's Official EPS Collection Centre, with support from Recycling Expanded Polystyrene Australia (REPSA). EPS foam's problem that has restricted it from being effectively recycled in the past, is its weight to volume ratio. While this is still an issue, CLAW's polystyrene compactor granulates and compacts the polystyrene into long blocks - enabling an average pallet to hold a tonne of processed project (quite a change!).
For more information regarding REPSA, check out: www.repsa.org.au
In 2006, crate manufacturer Viscount Plastics outsourced its crate
returns/recycling program that was previously done internally. As
there are issues regarding crate deposits and reuse of damaged
crates, CLAW Environmental was chosen to ensure that crates would be
completely destroyed and clients' interests would be looked after.
The rebate that Viscount Plastics offered for returned crates is
also being continued by CLAW.
Please keep checking this space for new recycling projects. To get a
project up and running, please contact CLAW Environmental.
