iQRenew is investing to increase our capability to sort and process recyclable materials in Australia. By doing so we help reduce shipments of waste sent overseas, divert waste from landfill and add value to our community.
The waste landscape around the world is changing. We can no longer ship the problem interstate or overseas. As of 2018, China has effectively banned all imports of foreign waste.
Australians recycle 51% of waste… meaning over half of what we throw away gets collected by local councils as recycling kerbside.
