Frankston City Council is paving the way for greater use of recycled plastics. This small stretch of road in Seaford, pictured, was the first in the City of Greater Frankston to be resurfaced with a type of asphalt that contains recycled plastics and commercial waste. In doing so, the council successfully diverted 500kg of material from landfill. The asphalt mix included recycled asphalt from other roads along with material from the automotive industry, such as hard plastics and glass. Incidentally, the council says the sturdy plastics used in the mix will not break down like, for example, plastic bags do and therefore will not end up as microplastics in our waterways.

Moreover, the mix can be recycled again and again when this patch of road needs to be replaced down the track. Frankston Council is one of only a few councils in Victoria to have started using this mix to resurface roads, and it plans to roll out the practice throughout the city.

The mix used is called PlastiPhalt®, an eco-friendly asphalt developed by road and building construction company Fulton Hogan that contains plastic waste sourced from within Victoria. The mix includes 20 per cent recycled asphalt ripped up from old roads and diverted from landfill. 

The asphalt used in the repair of the Seaford used was completed as a ‘warm mix’ instead of a ‘hot mix’, which means it was heated to a lower temperature, thereby reducing carbon emissions by about 30 per cent. This sustainable road product acts the same as a regular bitumen road, and the recycled plastics go into the ‘glue’ that holds it all together so that once it sets, it won’t melt again — even on the hottest Australian days.

Frankston Council, we take our hat off to you and your work towards becoming a truly sustainable city.
