WasteMotive initiative gathers momentum on the back of industry support

The Planet Ark led Waste Motive initiative has continued to gain momentum in recent months, with a host of forward-thinking automotive industry leaders, including MTA Queensland, coming together to sign-up as support partners of the new initiative.

With the issue of automotive plastic waste continuing to plague the industry, Waste Motive aims to bring together the best and brightest minds in the industry to develop sustainable solutions for disposing of and recycling waste.

The initiative’s founder Mario Dimovski, recently submitted Waste Motive to the National Product Stewardship Investment Fund, in the hopes to receive crucial funding that will assist in getting the initiative up and running.

Dimovski, who was optimistic of the outcome of the submission, was blown away by the support the initiative has already received from key industry players, saying it proved how important tackling the issue of automotive waste is to the industry.

“The support gained in such a short time has been overwhelming, as automotive plastic waste becomes a key issue for the industry. Going forward we can come together and work towards a unified outcome, rather than leaving it to individuals,” said Dimovski.

“I have set the platform, gained the support of key stakeholders and continue to receive interest from OEMs and insurance groups wanting to join the program, subject to internal governance, once it commences in early 2021.”

Upon commencement, Waste Motive will target six key pillars of action as it looks to tackle the issue of automotive waste once and for all.

These pillars include:

  1. Eliminate automotive plastic waste sent to landfill
  2. Reduce automotive waste cost to business
  3. Build a circular part re-use economy
  4. Develop custom recycling machines and equipment
  5. Create consumer & industry awareness programs
  6. Establish a better regulated waste management system
