NextGen - Sustainability in Horticulture
Join NextGen Victoria for a behind the scenes tour of Garden City Plastics and Polymer Processors.
Calling all NextGen-ers!
Join NextGen Victoria for a behind the scenes tour of Garden City Plastics and Polymer Processors. You’ll discover how they are leading the way in sustainable practises in horticulture, their mission to close the loop on PP5 plastic and how they are working together to launch a plant pot recycling bin scheme to help growers, retail businesses and consumers, to recycle their used pots.
Garden City Plastics (GCP) is Australia’s largest plastic pot manufacturer. The vast majority of their black plastic containers are made from recycled plastics and they have recently introduced a Recycled Colour range.
Polymer Processors is one of Australia's largest plastic recycling facilities in Australia. They use state of the art machinery wash, extrude, and pelletise various types of consumer and post-industrial waste, to divert plastic waste from landfill.
Attendee numbers are strictly limited.
