ZERO Waste Recycling Program

Our mission is to divert waste away from landfill.

Recycling is the cleanest and most efficient was to dispose of printed media.

Kirbyco has partnered with Future Post to turn our media waste into premium fence posts. All our products have been tested and approved for inclusion in Future Post products.

Why Future Post?

Future Post fence posts are 100% environmentally friendly. They don’t leach out CCAs (copper, chromium and arsenic) like treated timber posts or any other harmful ingredients which is why they are certified by BioGro NZ for use in organic farming. Every post is made from commercial plastic waste so there is no demand on natural resources to produce.

At the end-of-life, posts can be recycled multiple times. This creates an ongoing environmentally sound and sustainable solution for dealing with media waste

supports the community

We work with organisations that provide social benefits to the community. Before sending our waste to Future Post, it is collected, sorted and prepared by Abilities Group and the Disabled Citizens Society. Both these organisations give meaningful work to people with physical and intellectual disabilities.

By joining ZERO you will be contributing positively to the environment and the community while still meeting your commercial objectives.
