South Australian plastics recycling business closes due to hikes in electricity bills

South Australian plastics recycling business closes due to hikes in electricity bills, by Isabel Dayman.

South Australia’s sky-high electricity prices have forced an Adelaide plastics recycling business to shut its doors, costing 35 workers their jobs, its managing director says.

Plastics Granulating Services (PGS), based in Kilburn in Adelaide’s inner-north, said it had seen its monthly power bills increase from $80,000 to $180,000 over the past 18 months.

So it’s not just the aluminum smelters that have been forced to relocate outside Australia. After relocating in China, the tasks emit the same carbon emissions, just in a different country — and that’s what matters to our ruling class. Well done, watermelons.
