WHAT IS A WASTE PROCESSING FACILITY?

It’s where rubbish, garbage, junk, and waste are collected, separated, and sorted into categories according to material or recyclability. The rubbish sorting and processing can range from hand picking operations to highly mechanised or technically complex processes.

WHAT WASTE TYPES DO YOU SEPARATE FOR RECYCLING?

Green Gorilla recycles plasterboard and timber. We also extract cardboard, paper, plastics, and metals from rubbish that would have previously been sent to Auckland landfills. These recyclables are delivered to other recyclers.

CONSTRUCTION WASTE & COMMERCIAL WASTE IN AUCKLAND

We are the trusted waste management service provider for Auckland. At the centre of our operations is our Onehunga operations which also houses our EV fleet, timber recycling, waste diversion and gypsum recycling.

GREEN GORILLA'S AUCKLAND WASTE FACILITies IN A NUTSHELL

We separate and recycle waste that our Green Gorilla waste trucks collect from our Auckland commercial, industrial, construction and demolition clients. The waste types we don’t recycle are sent to other companies for recycling. Finally, the rubbish that is not recycled or re-used is typically destined for landfills. Our Onehunga operation covers approx. 2.4h of land that once was a landfill site. Green Gorilla’s separating and recycling operation employ a significant team of skilled staff who work across an extensive range of functions.

CAN I DROP OFF MY RUBBISH AT GREEN GORILLA?

Our Onehunga processing facility is not open to the public. You can hire a Gorilla skip or Gorilla Bag to dispose of your junk, but we do not allow casual rubbish drop-offs.
