Our operations in New Zealand and Australia have been leaders within Aliaxis in exploring new ways to recycle plastic and put it to new productive use.

To build on successes to date, Aliaxis New Zealand has joined forces with Waste Management NZ in a €7 million project to reuse plastic construction and demolition waste.

The investment supports our strategic target to use four times more recycled material in our products by 2025 to reach at least 50% of what is permitted under current regulations.

The funding will be invested in new plastic recycling facilities and to establish a network of metropolitan and regional PVC and HDPE collection services to ensure we have a steady supply of recyclate to include in our products or put to other uses.

Part of the investment has also been allocated to a research project to find new ways to minimise plastic construction waste.

Fully supported by the New Zealand government, this exciting project has attracted a grant from the Ministry of Environment’s Plastic Innovation Fund.

The project starts from a strong place. Thanks to all those that returned their old and unwanted product to us, we were able to recycle 610,000 kgs of plastic in 2022. That equates to 800 tons of CO2 saved, the equivalent of driving a pick-up truck nearly 10 times round the earth.
