Our Story

“Someone needs to step up and do a better job of waste management for New Zealand and that’s going to be some kiwis!”


Our DNA is 100 percent kiwi - in 2010, the Green Gorilla founders put their incredibly clever heads together and fueled by ambition, innovation and kiwi ingenuity, Green Gorilla has successfully braved uncharted territory to maximise recovery, re-use and recycle for a cleaner, greener New Zealand.

Gorilla-sized success - Green Gorilla is now the largest non-landfill owning, full spectrum waste services provider in Auckland and we take pride in setting the trends for waste services in New Zealand.

And the cherry on the top - we are still 100 percent kiwi owned and operated. We are invested in our country environmentally, economically and emotionally to cultivate a legacy that will live beyond us.


    We don’t operate landfill sites, so unlike others we invest in better environmental solutions for Auckland. Read about some our actions
