Services offered to councils utilise a wide variety of circular waste streams. Offered only to councils in Sydney at present, it is our goal to engage and train local disability enterprise partners and keep the jobs, resources and manufacturing innovations onshore and geographically close to each council. See below an overview of the service provided by us for Mosman Council and residents.
The Circular Centre is proud to work with Mosman Council as the first council in Australia to divert their resident's textile waste away from both landfill and prevent from being shipped offshore.
Mosman residents can download the RecycleSmart App and book a curbside collection of a wide variety of waste items including their "good" clothing that is donated to Vinnies and "unwearable" clothing and homewares including difficult items like bras, underwear, socks and old linen that are normally put in a rubbish bin.
View our "How-to" video created by Contrast Media and see steps below to learn more about our textile waste offered to councils.
We currently have 18 circular streams in Australia where we repurpose every waste material plus the packaging into other products. Streams include buttons, zippers, elastic, synthetic mixed textiles, wool, cotton, denim etc. See below for example streams.
Where possible, we offer a Take-back Service where our product are given a unique QR Code to follow the materials. We encourage users and customers to then return the product so it can re-join our circular streams ensuring its still kept out of landfill.
Clients can also work with Contrast Media to create a promo video of your company or council transitioning to zero waste using circular economy principles & ticking off many UN SDGs.
