Buy-back centres are facilities that pay a fee to waste collectors for the delivery of recyclables in the areas which they operate. These centres provide a vehicle for waste reclaimers to earn an income.

Mpact Recycling runs a national schools and communities programme as part of its post-consumer portfolio. These programmes play an important role in that they enable consumers to interact directly with the business, and both the Mpact and Mpact Recycling brands.

Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. This year’s theme is Invest in our Planet, calling on both businesses and individuals to contribute to a more prosperous and equitable future through collective action for change.

We are very proud to announce that all things associated with Recycling, our very own mascot, Ronnie Recycler has just been published. It's International Children's Book Day and to celebrate it we've partnered up with Qualibooks, a small publisher who shares our vision of making recycling a good habit from young.

One of the best motivating forces for recycling waste comes from the income opportunities that it creates. Through recycling and diverting waste, anyone can earn an income or even start and maintain a sustainable business.

Every year, the Earth yields billions of tonnes of natural resources and at some point, in the not too distant future, it will run out. That is why we must think again about what we throw away – seeing not waste, but opportunity.

Despite the challenges faced with the Covid-19 pandemic since 2020, Mpact Recycling is recognising its top performing schools for 2021. From a Recycling perspective, the schools programme was hit badly in 2020 with recycling efforts slowing down drastically as schools moved to online teaching when the pandemic hit. However, we were determined to not let recycling slip out of the minds of the youth – so Mpact Recycling continued with the schools programme, which includes Ronnie Recycler.
