Household Recycling

Australia's largest processor of kerbside recycling —reliably and locally remanufacturing 80% of the recycling bin contents into new products

Our recycling service and network of 20 operations provide you with the scale and certainty of a reliable service—diverting waste from landfill or export, turning it into new products.   

We work with communities and councils to recycle household waste, providing kerbside services, marketing and education support and an extensive network of processing facilities.   

We have a local remanufacturing solution for at least 80% of kerbside recycling bin contents. Through partnerships, reciprocal agreements and landfill avoidance initiatives we’re finding ways to put that other 20% to good use. For example, through a reciprocal agreement we send metal to be recycled by a specialist company and buy back recycled steel/aluminium for us to manufacture into new tins and cans.  



What happens to household recycling?

Once household recycling bins are collected, its contents are transported to a materials recovery facility (MRF). At the MRF, a combination of manual and automated systems sort the contents into different material groups, such as cardboard and paper, glass, rigid plastics, and metals like food cans and beverage cans.

After sorting, the materials are compressed into bales, which prepares them for further processing and remanufacturing. We primarily remanufacture within our own operations across Australia and New Zealand. We can remanufacture 80% of the contents from kerbside recycling bins into new packaging products locally in Australia and New Zealand.
