Please note: We do not currently accept post-consumer plastic directly from the public.
We're based in the leafy Eastern suburbs of Melbourne!
If you're looking to purchase a product or machinery, we ship Australia-wide and internationally. For locals, we offer a free pick-up option at checkout.
Our workshop is not open to the public, however you can sign up to our newsletter to keep in the loop about upcoming events. You can also check out our latest projects and happenings on Facebook or Instagram.
If you're after a consultation with our team, meetings can be booked here.
There a number of ways you can get involved in the micro-recycling movement! We've added a few ideas below:
• Join your local Lids4Kids Facebook group, and collect discarded plastic lids (which are then sent on to micro-recyclers)
• Start a recycling workshop at your school / community group / small business (we offer a variety of machinery, accessories and plastic to help get you started)
• Or simply find and support your local micro-recycler by purchasing a product or even engaging with them on social media / sharing their initiatives with your friends and family!
In 2021, Precious Plastic announced their Verified program, giving recognition to the top tier PP spaces around the globe (which they refer to as the crème de la crème of the Precious Plastic community)!
Precious Plastic Melbourne was announced as one of the initial selection within the Verified program, and are the only Verified space in Australia.
We continue to work closely with Precious Plastic HQ, and support many spaces within the community.
Yes we do! Head to our Education Program page to find out more.
