Our mission to “send junk to a better place” lies at the heart of everything Junk Run does –we divert at least 70% of everything we collect from landfill. No other waste management company in New Zealand even comes close. We do everything we can to reuse, repurpose and recycle. For us, it’s a calling.

Junk reallocation & recycling

A key part of our work involves hand-sorting and separating all unwanted inorganic items on site. This ensures that everything is redirected to the most suitable recovery facility or recipient. We never stop trying until we find a home for anything that can be re-used, repurposed or recycled. It’s easy for any company to make claims about how green they are. By contrast, our comprehensive and transparent reporting means Junk Run can prove it.

Working with partners

Dealing with unwanted items and junk sustainably gives us the opportunity to not only help the environment, but also to contribute to communities. That is why we gift items that we collect to charities, community groups and social enterprises. Our long term strategic partnerships with not-for-profit organisations means they can count on us to deliver goods that are both useful and valuable to them.
