Child safety seat recycling

posted in: Environmental | 0

Outlook was invited to participate in a trial product stewardship scheme to assess the viability of recycling child safety seats in Victoria. Funded by seat manufacturers and the RACV the trial was an outstanding success with Outlook receiving and processing over half of the volumes in the trial.

It’s hoped that the trial will lead to long-term funding for a permanent stewardship scheme, with the potential to divert thousands of tonnes from landfill annually and create long-term employment opportunities.

The Metropolitan Waste & Resource Recovery Group (a Victorian State Government Statutory body responsible for facilitating and coordinating resource recovery in metro Melbourne) produced the video and case study below highlighting Outlook’s involvement.
