More Than Ten Cents

Our Mission

Our mission is to help establish and support Plastic Recycling micro factories across Australia by providing tools, resources and consultation around recycling plastics. Our goal of 100 spaces around Australia has the potential to remove between 100 and 200 ton of waste plastic from waste streams each year and divert it to a circular stream...imagine what 1000 Precious Plastic micro factories could do!


What is More Than Ten Cents?

More Than ten cents is a community enterprise. We supply Precious Plastic Machines and parts with specific modifications if required for your project.

Machines are produced in Darwin using new parts and laser cut components and all electrical fitting is done by a licensed electrician to Australian wiring standards. They are tough and well made and we take pride in our products.

We also offer training, support and advice to communities or groups who want to establish a plastic makers space in their area. 

Why More Than Ten Cents?

Because we believe we can do so much better than 10 cents! 10cents is such a fleeting reward for such a long lived product and it is becoming clear that the cost of waste plasticfor our environment, marine life and our children's future is so much more than ten cents.

More Than Ten cents is focussed on doing better than ten cents and making a real impact through workshops and community engagement and collaboration in the hands on process of recycling plastic waste.

What is Precious Plastic?
