Ten Ton Project
Help Us Stop Waiheke's Construction Waste Going To Landfill
What We're Up To
When Lavara and I took on The Rubbish Company we saw a massive problem with landfill volumes coming from construction waste. It was hard to watch over 150 tons a month going to landfill that could be recycled. The transfer station was the only option and they don't recycle construction waste.
We decided to take a leap of faith and setup a Construction Waste Sorting Facility on island to redirect everything we could away from landfill, starting with what comes through our skip bins.
We approached key organisations and community groups for support and were overwhelmed with support.
In particular we'd like to thank our partners who are making this a reality:
How It Works
We empty as many construction waste skip bins as we can into our giant sized hook bins. When these are full we haul them off to Green Gorilla. Wherever possible we also divert reusable stuff to those on island who can reuse it. We've made it to 50 tons a month lately and hope to keep growing this.
