Disposal of waste products has been a problem for most people in most parts of the world. This is because of the link between waste products and environmental health. The failure to dispose waste products in an efficient and safe manner has always resulted to environmental hazards that have threatened the health of people especially those living in urban areas. In Australia, the recycling system and sector has played a leading role in ensuring that wastes products are recycled instead of being released into the environment in their raw states (Tam & Tam, 2006). As such, the Australian recycling sector has played an important role in promoting environment health and protecting the environment from harm. The aim of this project is to examine plastics recycling in Australian and its role in promoting better environmental health outcomes and improving health of people. By recycling plastics, the Australian Recycling sector is at the forefront in preventing environmental degradation and promoting good environmental and public health (Fletcher & Mackay, 1996). Disposing waste products in the right manners is critical to the lives of people especially those living in urban centres. Through research, this paper will help inform plastic disposal practices that would help maintain a healthy Australia.
