Our Facilities

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.

Green Gorilla’s facilities in a nutshell

We separate and recycle waste that our Green Gorilla waste trucks collect from our Auckland and Waikato 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 landfill.

What waste types do you separate for recycling?

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