GreenStuf® Take Back Programme

Reducing waste with GreenStuf Take-Back Programme

We're doing our part to help those using GreenStuf Insulation with cost-effective and practical ways to reduce waste on the job site. Our Take Back Programme enables builders and subcontractors to minimise waste by taking back uncontaminated GreenStuf Insulation and the outer packaging to help keep our products out of landfills.

We're making efforts to reduce the amount of construction and industrial waste going to landfill by offering a GreenStuf take-back programme. The program allows you to drop off used uncontaminated GreenStuf insulation to be made into new product so that we can help close the loop and divert it from the landfill. Autex also encourages installers to return their GreenStuf packaging to Autex's take-back bin when collecting new product, which is then transformed by a third party into plastic mesh fencing and plastic batons.

We have engaged with a third party to take the bags (which are high quality plastic) and turn them into plastic mesh fencing and plastic batons. As we measure the success of the Auckland program, we are aiming to introduce take back bins all over New Zealand, allowing easy access for all Autex customers. We’re also working on an electric vehicle pilot program to visit building sites wherever our product is being installed and collect GreenStuf bags.

For those in Auckland, the take back bin is now in place, so next time you are picking up an order, don’t forget your plastic bags!
