What can Australian warehouses and factories recycle?

Industrial equipment

A range of industrial equipment from transformers through to thermostats can potentially contain mercury, and therefore need to be disposed of safely. Depending on the size and nature of the equipment, specialist help may be required to assess the risks and to design effective solutions.


Batteries, including tiny button cells and batteries bigger than shipping containers, are playing an increasingly important role in today’s energy mix. Battery recycling not only recovers many valuable materials, it also prevents a range of pollutants from entering the environment.

The right recycling partner

There are many types of general waste that warehouses and factories can easily recycle, such as shipping pallets, plastic wrap and cardboard. But when it comes to specific types of potentially hazardous waste, such as those mentioned here, it’s important to work with truly experienced, properly licensed and appropriately equipped recycling partners.

E-waste impact continues to grow

Without a doubt the impact of e-waste continues to grow with its significant impact on the environment.     Indeed, only 12% of the nation’s computers are recycled. At this time, Australia is the fourth highest generator of e-waste per capita in the world.  Poorly managed e-waste means heavy metals and hazardous waste such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retardants leak into the environment.  Clearly, the risks of data leaks are also increased if the device’s storage aren’t carefully treated.
