Where does Wastebusters recycling go?
Local & global reprocessors
Real recycling reclaims resources, reduces your carbon footprint, and saves water, energy and raw materials. We have long standing relationships with our reprocessors and agents, so you can trust the chain of custody for your recycling.
All the glass we recycle goes to Auckland to be made back in glass bottles and jars. Closed loop bottle-to-bottle recycling is the best outcome for glass according to the waste hierarchy, and our use of coastal shipping ensures that the carbon footprint of bottles made from our recycled glass is lower than using virgin materials.
Wastebusters plastic containers and bottles are also recycled onshore by reprocessors who meet New Zealand’s environmental and labour standards.
