Dear Mitre 10 Bayswater,

I believe you sell Teampoly plastic rainwater tanks and wondered if you could help me. I am thinking of buying a poly tank but would like to know if it can be recycled when it eventually is broken down by sunlight. I would like to think I was doing the right thing by the environment in buying a tank which can be recycled at the end of its life.

Thanks for your help,
Don Matthews

Hi Don,

Thanks for the inquiry, I have spoken to one of my tank suppliers (Melbourne Roto moulders) and he said that they have tested tanks in full sun in Queensland and after 18 years the tank has only slight surface degradation with an estimated life of 35+ years.He also said he can organize as a service to take tanks back to recycle.I hope this information is of some help to you, if you tell me what size you are after I can email you a quote.
