We have an extended partnership with TerraCycle, a global leader in collecting hard-to-recycle waste. TerraCycle's innovative solutions align with our commitment to waste reduction. Through using the Zero Waste Box, we're recycling personal protective equipment and other hard-to-recycle materials, reducing waste destined for landfills. We're recycling everything from disposable gloves, hair nets, and face masks to safety glasses, contributing to a significant reduction in production waste.
Beyond our partnership with TerraCycle, we're dedicated to waste reduction within our facility:
Cardboard Recycling: All cardboard waste is recycled, compressing it into bales and sent to the Sydney Paper Mill to be repurposed, reducing the demand for new materials.
Wooden Pallets Recycling: Unused wooden pallets are 100% recycled. They're either repurposed into new pallets or upcycled into furniture.
