Our Story

We are a very rare company in the New Zealand context, in that we are privately owned and with some of our local body contracts operating for 18 years. We have relationships dating back 20 years to when the company was first formed as Streetsmart Limited. Operating in the North and South Island and with a large workforce, modern systems and scalable operations, we believe that we are the ideal fit between a small local contractor and large international companies.

Who are we?

  • The third largest Waste and Recycling Company in New Zealand
  • The largest NZ owned waste and recycling company
  • We employ directly within the communities in which we work
  • We have been servicing Councils around New Zealand for over 20-years
  • We use local service providers to support our operations as part of our philosophy of working with the local community

A note from Grahame:

In a time of constant and rapid change, challenges arise every day. It is how we deal with those changes and challenges that set us apart.
Adaptable, innovative and customer, supplier and employee focused organisations will flourish in that environment – and we do. We build long term relationships, some of our customers, suppliers and employees have been with us for nearly 20 years and some even longer.
To survive and thrive as we have done can only be achieved through a dedicated “smart” and hardworking team. Our team have built a reputation of trust and reliability. We are open and honest with ourselves and our customers. We share knowledge and information, we won’t hide our mistakes, we will tell you about it and we will fix it. It is no accident; our point of difference is what I have said above and how we will work with you.
Our leadership team are qualified and skilled, our management team are outcome focused and our staff are committed to doing a great job. Due to the nature of our contracting work, our jobs depend on it. Our fleet and systems are modern and our solutions are bespoke to our customers needs, no one-size fits all.
With a skilled and experienced Board of Directors, our direction and focus is clear and most importantly we want all of our people to go home safe - every day.
We believe that even within this ever changing environment, there is a place for old fashioned values.
Welcome to Smart Environmental.
