"We sell products that are built to last"
"We take all reasonable steps to recycle packaging"
Freight packaging is stored and reused, with screwed up old newspapers being our preferred packing material.
In Christchurch our Polystyrene is recycled by Mastaguard, where it is exported for concrete production.
In Wellington, starting from October 2016, our Polystyrene will be used by PolyPalace for use in roading materials for the McKay's - Pekapeka Expressway. This is one of the only genuinely useful means of reducing polystyrene going to land-fill. We recommend all businesses that have waste polystyrene pay for this service.
Un-repairable electronics are stripped, sorted and recycled. Cable off cuts, scrap metal, even unused nuts, bolts and screws are all sorted and recycled.
In the staff room all milk and beer bottles, cans, plastic food containers and even take away coffee cups are cleaned and recycled via curb side recycling where it is available.
