Collection Services

Tailored Collection Programs for 'Hard to Recycle' Packaging


Industrial packaging is often 'hard to recycle' as it contains residues which make it difficult to process and there is limited infrastructure available to efficiently collect it. Whether you're a council, corporate or commercial farm, Auckland Drum can provide a tailored collection service for your 'hard to recycle' packaging which cannot be collected via traditional recycling networks. This service enables you to divert your industrial packaging from landfill so it can be reprocessed into valuable resources once again.

What will Auckland Drum do with your used packaging?

  • Drums and IBCs will be reconditioned, remanufactured or rebottled so they can be reused
  • Used packaging will be converted into post consumer recyclate (PCR) for use in new industrial products
  • If it cannot be reconditioned, remanufactured, rebottled or recycled in-house, it will be consolidated for collection and processing by steel and plastic recyclers

Auckland Drum's processes comply with approvals and accepted safety and environmental standards and stringent procedures ensure that any harmful residues in waste drums are disposed of appropriately to minimise environmental impact.
