Braybrook-based organisation Green Collect has been awarded the Social Enterprise of the Year by Social Traders – from a highly competitive field of over 300 certified enterprises across Australia.
Green Collect’s innovative model provides environmentally sustainable solutions for office waste – including folders, computers and accessories, stationery, and unwanted electronic items.
Each year, Green Collect divert 125 tonnes of complex forms of waste from landfill – including 80,000 folders! They specialise in finding the best outcome for each item, through reuse, upcycle and responsible recycling.
The significant positive environmental impact is paired with social impact through the provision of long-term employment for people who have faced barriers to work.
