About Us

So, you've decided to "GO GREEN." You've replaced your regular light bulbs with energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs and purchased recycling bins. You've even organised that pile in the garage. You know the one outdated audio equipment, used cans of paint, even an old car battery. You're feeling pretty proud of your self, until you realise, "Hey. How do I get rid of all this stuff ?" And no, you can't just put it out with the trash. Now that is where MY WASTE comes in.  


My Waste's mission is to deliver information that enables people to actively contribute to sustainability, a concept the United Nations defined in 1987 as "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. 


A further initiative to expand public awareness of the scheme is by offering the opportunity for corporate partners to display the My Waste logo on their products or to make use of our Free and Custom Widgets on their websites. We hope that with time the My Waste logo will become synonymous with recycling initiatives and help raise the overall awareness to the importance of the green movement in the future of our planet. Supported and endorced by the WASTE INDUSTRY, MY WASTE has the full support of all the waste sectors. 


Our Team is made up of very talented people and they all share one common goal: Our passion for a greener enviroment thus driving us to minimising waste to landfill as well as the promotion of individual recycling companies,  products and services nationally.
