Green Gorilla's Construction and Demolition Waste Processing Facility divert more than 75% of incoming construction and demolition waste from Auckland's landfills. We also operate a wood-chipping operation that turns treated wood into biofuel and untreated wood into landscaping chips and animal bedding, plus a plasterboard processing plant that successfully separates gypsum for use in horticultural and agricultural sectors. It's a recycling centre on a massive scale.
Our state-of-the-art Commercial and Industrial Waste Processing Facility is the most modern waste sorting process of its kind in Australasia, the largest in New Zealand and the only one in Auckland. The facility can recover up to 40% of your general waste that would previously have gone to a landfill. For businesses that have been unable to sort and separate their waste, this facility will do it for them. Simply it removes the requirement to sort their own recycling onsite.

To assist in feeding waste to our processing facility, we operate a transfer station in West Auckland. We are currently in the consenting phase for another standalone processing facility in South Auckland at Drury.
We have been operating electric waste trucks and support vehicles since 2016. We firmly believe that being able to run a significant portion of our services on a zero-emissions basis far outweighs the additional cost of the investment. The benefits of these EVs go beyond our business, customers, and community. In addition to our electric vehicle fleet, our waste processing facility is electrically powered. Our material handlers are also electrically driven, being the only ones of this type in New Zealand. Electric power for this facility and our vehicle charging is supplied by Ecotricity, New Zealand’s only 100% CarboNZero certified supplier.
We provide a 24/ 7 service to thousands of customers daily. Significant clients include large-scale commercial and industrial operations, local Government, FMC, University of Auckland, Unitec, AUT, Ports of Auckland, Auckland Council, Selwyn Healthcare, O-I Glass and API Consumer.
Through its experience and capabilities, Green Gorilla will deliver exceptional solutions designed to benefit your business and provide an efficient waste service tailored to your needs. Put simply, Green Gorilla is a cost-effective, sustainable waste service that’s great for your business, our city and our country.
