Total Green Recycling is now accredited to the internationally recognised ISO 14001 standard for its Environmental Management System.
Environmental Management is of utmost importance to Total Green Recycling. Electronic waste is complex waste stream containing a mixture of valuable commodities together with a range of harmful and potentially toxic materials. Therefore, separation and recovery of these materials requires special care and expertise to properly recover the valuable commodities whilst safely capturing and containing potential toxins and preveting them from entering the environment.
To achieve this Total Green Recycling has developed and implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) to control and manage the environmental outcomes of its business. In 2011 TGR engaged SAI Global, an independant organisation, who conducted official audit our EMS and on 8th December 2011, Total Green Recycling was officially certified and registered as compliant to the AS/NZS ISO 14001:2004 standard.
Through our ongoing commitment to continuous improvement, Total Green Recycling continues to strive for leadership in environmental outcomes and sustainable recycling.

Alice in Wonderland Orphanage was opened last year in March in Faridabad, India, and is now home to 12 children between the ages of 3 - 9.
Frances Gray an acquaintance of the business has been working with the orphanage for some time, sending clothes, money and other necessities to help the children out. Inspired by Frances's effort Total Green Recycling decided to help the orphanage out by sending a laptop to help the children with there studies. The children attend a private school in the hope they can secure a scholarship and go to University, a laptop will help them out in achieving this goal.
Overjoyed with the donation the children made Total Green Recycling a thankyou card.
