Why does a Zero Waste Box cost money when free recycling programs do not?

The cost of recycling can be broken down into three main parts: transportation, processing and recycling. For public council recycling, your taxes pay for kerbside pickup, transportation to the recycling plant, sorting and recycling.

With our free recycling programs, the sponsoring brands and retailers pay for these expenses, making it free for consumers to recycle.

With a Zero Waste Box, you have the power to take matters into your own hands and recycle everything. While the Zero Waste Box system may seem expensive, it is more than “just a box.” It is a way to recycle everything and keep your products and packaging out of landfills.

The price of each Zero Waste Box includes the cost of transportation, processing and recycling. To learn more, check out our blog post here.
