Rhapsody Resort is proud to announce a partnership with ‘Close The Loop‘.
Close the Loop turn your waste soft plastics and used toner cartridges into TonerPlas, an additive that can be used in road construction. TonerPlas is an asphalt additive that contains the equivalent of 530,000 recycled plastic bags and toner from more than 12,000 recycled cartridges in every 1km stretch of two-lane road. TonerPlas doesn’t just divert waste plastic from landfill, it creates a better-quality road and has a 65 percent increase in fatigue life meaning longer lasting roads than traditional asphalt. The Australian Government has recognised the sustainability value of TonerPlas and approved its commissioning into the M80 Upgrade and Monash Freeway Upgrade projects in Melbourne. The M80 project has been dubbed “the most sustainable freeway in Australia”
