UOW MakerSpace: MakerSpace Recycling Initiative

UOW MakerSpace Recycling Initiative

Using the open source 'Precious Plastics' movement as inspiration, the UOW MakerSpace is planning turn the way we think about plastic on its head. With support from the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences, DVC - Research & Innovation, and in collaboration with:

  • UOW MakerSpace Club
  • UOW Women in STEM
  • UOW Enviro Collective
  • UOW Mechatronics Society
  • UOW Motorsports Club

We're breathing new life into our wasted plastic by constructing machinery to shred, extrude and inject it into an exciting array of products. From unique artworks, everyday household products, to 100% recycled building materials: the sky's the limit!

Household items that could be made from recycled plastics, including bowls, boxes and kitchen utensils
