The Basics...

3R Group is a privately owned company started in 2004.

The main office is located in sunny Hawke’s Bay but we also have processing hubs in Auckland and Christchurch. We usually have around 20 staff.

We look at waste with fresh eyes

At 3R, waste isn’t a problem, it’s an opportunity for environmental and economic benefit.

And we’re passionate about helping businesses and their customers responsibly dispose of used products and packaging.

Combine this passion with expertise in bringing together individual businesses, industry and government to find innovative outcomes for waste, and it’s a recipe for some seriously good product stewardship solutions.

Whether the “waste” in question can be reused, recycled or simply requires safe disposal, we offer our resourceful thinking to industry, here and abroad, applying existing ideas where appropriate or collaborating with others to create innovative new solutions.

We believe helping clients take responsibility for their products at the end of their life can mitigate environmental harm and provide improved resource efficiency through the recycling or reuse of materials. This can lead to other economic benefits such as winning new customers, gaining entry to new markets, employment opportunities, or creating new products from recovered materials.

Most importantly, in today’s competitive and environmentally conscious markets, it can solve a key problem for customers: how to responsibly dispose of unwanted products.

To “live well and within the limits of the planet” as outlined by Vision2050, businesses need to take this wasted opportunity now, and benefit from the chance to add value and create wealth from waste for both their shareholders and New Zealand as a whole.
