COVID-19: re-use shops to reopen

Resource Recovery Australia is a social enterprise: a different kind of business.

We operate reuse shops, transfer stations, mobile problem waste services, EPS- polystyrene recycling, community workshops, consulting, container deposit scheme (return and earn), community recycling centres, and engage local communities in our work.

We do this to:

  • Keep waste out of landfill
  • Create stable and meaningful jobs for people experiencing barriers to work
  • Engage and connect people in the communities in which we work
