Established in 1975 as Paper Reclaim, we rebranded as Reclaim in 2012 to reflect our broad range of services and our important position in the recycling market. We have enjoyed steady growth, becoming recognised as the market leader in the commercial collection and processing of recyclable cardboard, waste paper, glass bottles, plastic film and containers, aluminium and steel cans.
Reclaim is now the largest privately owned supplier of recyclable resources in New Zealand employing over 100 people. We reclaim valuable resources from recyclable waste using a 5 Point Reclaim Loop. We separate recyclable products at source, then sort and distribute them properly to provide reprocessing manufacturers with refined quality recyclable materials.
The company has a fleet of more than 30 trucks and associated vehicles which enables the provision of regular collection services on a daily, weekly, fortnightly or an ‘on-demand’ collection basis. On average, our collection trucks make in excess of 30,000 site visits per month. Reclaim operates processing plants in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. The head office is located in Penrose. Upon arrival at the processing plants, the various grades of materials are sorted to remove contaminants and then compacted into high-density bales. Reclaim handles in excess of 300 tonnes of recyclables per day. This material is recycled either locally or internationally back into new products.
Our sponsorship of recycle.co.nz for all New Zealanders reinforces our commitment to the well-being of future generations. Find recycle.co.nz on Facebook.
