Community partnerships are just the way we do business…

We support local

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


We are 100% New Zealand owned and support New Zealand business alike. 

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

We always employ our people from your community
