Joondalup, WA tested a recycled road surface as part of landfill diversion efforts

A stretch of Arnisdale Road from Portree Reserve to Glengarry Park was repaved with Reconophalt. This project used more than 200,000 plastic bags along with printer toner, recycled asphalt, and scrapped rubber otherwise headed to the landfill. Joondalup became one of the first governments in the region to pursue sustainable paving practices. The Reconophalt project contributes to Western Australia's goal of diverting 65% of landfill waste by 2020.
