GYRO-Cycled

Product Stewardship

& Circular Economy

Our goal to be an eco friendly plastic manufacturer, is to receive back 100% of GYRO products removed from service, recycle and reuse 100% of the raw material collected. 

From 1 November 2019, some of our larger customers implemented a "divert from landfill" scheme to help us collect any of our product which has been deemed no longer fit for use.

We will go further than just saying that our product can and has been recycled, we will take that recycled material and re-use it in our own products. By controlling the content of our recycled material, we can control the quality and ensure that we continue to make the best, most robust products every time.

Operational Waste

Reduction & Recycling

We are committed to:

  • Designing modularity into our products to avoid unnecessary replacements of entire units when only one part is damaged

  • Utilising external recycling services for paper, cardboard and packaging to reduce waste going to landfill

  • Educating our team to develop and maintain a culture of sustainability

  • Committed to re-using 100% of our post-processing scrap raw material

  • Creating operational efficiency through the ongoing certification and education of our employees

  • Considering the most environmental suitable, sustainable and recyclable plastic and other materials at every phase of operation

  • Conducting regular maintenance and audits to identify and resolve environmental waste, such as air leaks, heat loss and electrical inefficiencies

  • Supporting NZ made

Operation Clean Sweep

A global program that independently audits businesses who voluntarily commit to avoiding community contamination through their operational processes. The goal: achieving zero pellet, flake, and powder loss.

"Operation Clean Sweep® is an international program designed to prevent resin pellet, flake, and powder loss and help keep this material out of the marine environment. Every segment of the plastics industry has a role to play—including resin producers, transporters, recyclers and plastics processors—by implementing good housekeeping and pellet, flake, and powder containment practices. Operation Clean Sweep has been adopted by plastics industries in more than 23 countries around the world."

We are committed to at the very least, doing no harm, and as a result of an external audit from Plastics New Zealand, are proud to say that we have adopted best practices under Operation Clean Sweep and have committed to the ongoing protection of our waterways from accidental spillages on site.
