Conversation with Michael Coghill
Purposeful employment, the future of WA’s battery industry and all things E-waste with Michael Coghill from Total Green Recycling
The covid-19 health and economic crisis has highlighted the importance of local jobs and being more resourceful, so we had a yarn with Michael Coghill to hear what lessons we can learn from the circular economy.
Rethink needed for recycling
Industry experts are echoing calls from recyclers about the need to make changes to the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme.
The E-waste Watch Institute’s Joh Gertsakis says there are several issues with the NTCR Scheme that need to be resolve to improve the sector.
Oversight call from e-waste recyclers
A lack of enforced regulation is making it hard for compliant e-waste recyclers to stay in business.
The founders of Western Australia’s largest e-waste recycling business claim a national waste recycling scheme is not being enforced properly, providing opportunities for non-compliant e-waste recyclers.
Re-e-magining Waste & Work
As we welcome back Total Green Recycling back into the City of Canning, we reached out to learn and share their inspiring journey as pioneers of the electronic waste industry in WA.
Passionate about tackling Australia’s growing waste problems, brothers Michael and James Coghill established That Guy’s Recycling in their dad’s garage in 2008.
Total Green Recycling: Embracing Challenges is Their Success Mantra
As they say, “Small beginnings are the launching pad to great endings”, this quote perfectly describes the initial days of Total Green Recycling. Michael and James were two passionate individuals who desired to find a solution to Australia’s increasing waste problems.
Employers need to see the bigger picture
In today’s market, finding securing and maintaining long-term employment with a supportive employer can be tough.
Add to this a disability, injury or health condition and the task can seem impossible. Marlon’s story is not dissimilar to many others living with disability who are looking for employment.
Recycling initiatives earn praise for Busselton
Total Green Recycling, one of WA’s leading e-waste recycling specialists, released the figures to encourage consumers to keep their e-waste out of landfill.
Busselton recorded 13.61 tonne of e-waste, coming in second overall statewide to the City of Stirling, which unloaded 55.29 tonne.
Is this laboratory actually home to the world’s tiniest gold mine?
Total Green Recycling director Michael Coghill and his brother started up their recycling business in Western Australia 10 years ago when the industry was in the “dark ages”.
“We started out in our Dad’s shed and we were only doing a couple of tonnes a month,” Mr Coghill said.
Shire of Esperance recycling effort recognised
Waste management company Total Green Recycling released the monthly breakdown acknowledging the top five performing local governments in WA on February 8.
Esperance placed third ahead of the Shire of Broome and Mindarie Regional Council and sat closely behind the City of Busselton.
City’s commitment to e-waste recycling wins praise
Bunbury residents have been praised for their electronic waste recycling efforts with more than 5000kg diverted from landfill.
Total Green Recycling – the e-waste recycling company which collects the materials – was sent 5214kg of items such as computers, televisions and phones from Bunbury this year.
