A Tasmanian government body has found a very unique way to recycle single-use plastics and other landfill-bound waste by building a new road. 
173,600 plastic bags and packaging, 82,500 glass bottle equivalents diverted from landfill, Toner
from approximately 5,900 used printer cartridges and more than 33
tonnes of recycled asphalt were  repurposed to create the 330 tonnes
of asphalt used to construct a 500-meter long road along Charlton Street in the town
of Snug, outside the city of Hobart.

It’s the first road of its kind in the Australian state. Great example to follow.
