Ecocycle is Australasia’s most experienced mercury recovery and recycling company.
We are the only company to be fully licensed by the Environmental Protection Agencies in each state to handle the entire process of recycling mercury-containing waste.
Our state of the art equipment allows us to safely recover mercury from:
- Fluorescent tubes, lamps and other types of lighting waste
- Dental and medical waste
- Mining concentrates and residues
- Industrial equipment
- Most types of batteries
- Electronic waste (e-waste)
We continue to invest in new equipment and purpose-built sites, recycling mercury in every capital city in Australia. Ecocycle is part of Recycal, an experienced metal recycling group that provides a range of metal recycling solutions.
Mercury recycling equipment
We offer more than just a recycling service.
Through our exclusive agency agreements with Swedish companies MRT Systems, the leading manufacturer of mercury recycling equipment, and Sweden Recycling (SRAB), the leading manufacturer of amalgam separators, we also supply a range of quality mercury recovery equipment throughout Australia.
Ecocycle Industries was formed in 1996 to focus on silver recovery. As digital technology took over the imaging industry, it turned its attention to mercury, and in 2000 Ecocycle purchased ARA. ARA had been recycling mercury for some years but was experiencing a number of difficulties, so Ecocycle Industries set about the task of modernising the equipment and educating industry on the importance of mercury recycling.
Later in 2007 CMA Corporation bought Ecocycle Industries and changed the name to CMA Ecocycle. Key members of the original Ecocycle management team left the business in 2010 and formed metals recycling company Recycal.
In late 2013 CMA Corporation went into administration. Left without a viable mercury recycling service, industry encouraged the original management of CMA Ecocycle Industries to again take on the role of Australia’s leading mercury recycler. Later in 2013 Recycal took over all assets of CMA Ecocycle, including the name, and with great support from MRT Systems quickly put neglected equipment back into service.
In 2019, the CMA was dropped, and the company was rebranded as Ecocycle.

Ian has over 40 years experience in the Dental Industry and is well known by both the dental profession and dental companies throughout Australia.
