    Cardno BSD was appointed by the Department of Environment and Conservation (Western Australia) to carry out general background research into issues relating to the current generation and fate of used industrial plastics in Western Australia. In order to define the baseline information relating to the production, waste management practices and markets for industrial plastics, Cardno BSD undertook a comprehensive review of readily available literature and completed extensive stakeholder consultation with organisations operating in Western Australia. Policies, tools and programmes (measures) implemented in other jurisdictions were investigated. The policy review was completed to ensure that, where practical, a best practice approach could be adopted in Western Australia. The information gathered relating to industrial plastic manufacturing, disposal, recycling and reuse in Western Australia, together with local market data has been analysed and the key issues and barriers have been identified, together with recommendations to address them.
