Leading The Resource Revolution

We’re rethinking the way we obtain, use, reuse and optimise the world’s resources.

We believe a healthy environment comes from the smart use of materials and resources around us.

That means maximising the use and re-use of those resources so nothing is wasted and nothing is truly thrown away.

But belief is nothing without action. So every year we collect and recycle more than 40 billion cans and bottles worldwide – and continually create new, innovative technology for a smarter recyclable future.

Which is why we’re the world leader in reverse vending solutions.


Container Deposit Schemes

How they work?

Container deposit schemes work by adding a small deposit on top of the price of everyday beverages.

This deposit is then refunded to the consumer when they return their empty drink container for recycling.

Today, these schemes are in place in many countries across the world and have been proven to reduce container litter and increase recycling rates.

How they help the environment?

1. Litter reduction:  Traditionally waste has no value to the individual. And while there are many places to dispose of waste, it still relies on the individual to do the right thing. Many do, but many don’t. By adding a 10c reward, it incentivises and motivates people to dispose of their waste responsibly.

2. More effective recycling:  By capturing and sorting purely eligible drink containers, this generates a much cleaner material stream that can then be recycled again and again in a clean loop system, rather than much of it going to landfill due to material contamination.
