Recycling Collection Points for Pool Inflatables

PLOYS gladly recycles your punctured or discarded pool inflatables, air mattresses, rubber boats or broken umbrellas. We happily transform these into unique bags and purses or home decor!

Punctured pool inflatables collection for recycling

You can donate your punctured Inflatable either through one of our collection points or you can post these to us. 

Please consider the state of the inflatables before donating, we can only use inflatables that are in a near new condition, ideally not more than one year old. We can unfortunately not use mouldy, perished, discoloured or stained material. We only accept pool floats not paddle pools or blow up pools. Recycling your umbrella? Please only send us the fabric, not the frame.

Fighting plastic waste pollution

Thank you for joining our fight against plastic pollution and we like to thank the environmentally focussed community organisations and businesses at the above locations for supporting PLOYS pooltoy recycling 💚♻️  

PLOYS - creative concepts in disguise operates through a circular loop, formed by collecting recyclable PVC materials and transforming these into new durable bags and purses. 

Following our passion of reducing waste and plastic pollution 💚♻️ All material is sourced locally and reintroduced into society - meaning we are proudly Australian owned and operated. 

Most inflatable pooltoys are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and are not accepted at recycling facilities. You can tell by the recycling number 3 on the material that it’s a difficult to recycle product. However at PLOYS we recycle soft PVC into unique bags and purses.
