Our Commitment to Our Communities

Smart Environmental reinvests strongly in the regions it operates in by:

  • spending locally
  • employing locally
  • spending profits locally
  • supporting local companies, and
  • openly seeking and contracting local subcontractors

Trailer-Wash against Waste

Te Kakano

Working with Te Kakano Trust to offset our carbon emissions.

Reuse Shops

We believe that a Reuse shop is a natural fit for Resource Recovery as it provides a portal for the recovery of any reusable goods from the waste stream. Our preference is to work closely with the community to ensure that a Reuse Shop would work and is sustainable. 
Currently we operate Reuse shops in:
  • Thames-Coromandel
  • Tasman
  • Queenstown Lakes 
We draw our people from your community

"It all starts with a great team; Honesty, integrity and doing what we say we will is a cornerstone to who we are."
