Public place recycling

Public place recycling (PPR) is a materials recovery system designed to collect materials from the waste stream for recycling in high-use public areas such as retail, recreational, sporting, tourist and transport sites.

Sustainability Victoria's Public Place Recycling Toolkit contains practical information, case studies and resources. They apply whether you are adding recycling to an existing waste management system or developing a whole new waste and recycling system.

All of this information has been specifically sourced to assist with planning and implementing:

  • a consistent approach between recycling at home, work/school and play
  • a 5-stage process for maximising recovery of recyclable resources
  • the development of economical, easily-maintained waste and recycling systems.
