About this Speaker

The project aims to refine the management of plastics within communities of Cape York through a community-based small-scale mechanical recycling system. This is is a simple form of plastic solid waste recycling suited for remote areas.

This design begins with plastic waste collection through community collections point, then mechanically shredding the plastic solid waste. The shredder sits on a wooden work bench, which is mounted on a metal frame. The design has taken into account stakeholders design requirements result in design that can be constructed, operated and maintained by the community
