Who We Are

Educating Our Community

Educating the Airlie Beach, Mackay and Proserpine community on the importance of recycling and reducing waste is what we’re all about here at Anything Environmental! We’re passionate about helping households, workplaces and councils rethink their approach to rubbish by reducing, reusing and recycling.

Our team will help you better understand what happens to your waste when it’s recycled and the countless benefits recycling has for the environment. We’re more than happy to pass on tips, share advice and suggest ideas on how you can improve your environmental footprint. To learn more about our recycling programs, which include Containers for Change, drop and go bins, commercial collection, home collection and more; or for other recycling information; speak to our team on (07) 4952 6866 today!

How You Can Make a Difference

For a small investment on your part, you can make a world of difference simply by recycling your waste. We’ve put together a list of important recycling facts:

  • The energy saved by recycling one plastic drink bottle is enough to power a personal computer for 25 minutes.
  • It takes 25 two-litre plastic bottles to make a large-sized fleece jacket
  • As plastic decomposes, methane is produced, which is 20 times stronger than carbon dioxide
  • Plastic bottles that are thrown away & not recycled are responsible for killing birds & marine life
  • Aside from helping the environment, you can make money recycling plastic bottles by taking them to a CRP Depot or using a community drop & go bin
