Our partners

We have also been a supporter of equal opportunity employment for the disabled, partnering with Rocky Bay employment services, Maxima and the Autism Association. We plan to continue to grow this program in the coming years.

Our accreditation

In 2016, we gained AS/NZS accreditation for our e-waste recycling process and subsequently become the largest recycler in WA processing over 80% of the electronics collected and recycled in WA through the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme (NTCRS). 

Our mission

We hope to provide even more green jobs to long-term unemployed people with disabilities and technology displaced workers. 

Our goal is to ban e-waste from our WA landfills by 2020.
