Hamilton Island Recycling Plant

In time for World Environment Day, Hamilton Island celebrated the opening of its new waste management and recycling facility, which includes a state-of-the-art glass crushing plant.

The use of crushed glass in a variety of applications, from drainage to pipe bedding and even in garden beds, means the recycling facility will have positive impacts not only on the amount of waste material having to be shipped to the mainland for processing, but also creates environmental and financial benefits for the island well into the future.
