  • 7th August 2017 - Planet Ark Response to Four Corners ( 195kb pdf file)
    ABC's Four Corners recently featured "Trashed" about the waste and recycling industry. Planet Ark supports coverage of important issues facing the waste and recycling industry and positive changes that will improve environmental outcomes. There were however some omissions and misrepresentations that need to be addressed.
    It was not stated in the program that ABC interviewed Planet Ark as part of the filming, so our position was not shared with viewers. In that interview we made clear our position on the lack of a QLD Waste Levy and consequent transportation of waste across state boundaries as well as our partnership with Bingo Industries. We have included these responses below along with other reactions to issues raised on the program.
