Materials We Collect

of total waste diverted from landfill

Thanks to the dedication of our team and our members, we’ve been able to divert over 1.2 tonnes of waste away from landfill! From hair to metal, paper, plastics, chemicals and more, our goal is to collect all these recyclable materials to watch this number grow and grow!

We divert 95% of salon materials away from landfill across 5 feel good industries

We collect and divert all of this stuff

(and more!)

It all starts with you…

When you join the Sustainable Salons family, you get your very own custom bins to separate your valuable waste materials.

When these get full, each bin bag gets tied up and goes in your purple bin or Linnk bag, ready for collection and transport to our depots. And just like that, you’ve done your bit for a more sustainable future!

It’s either our couriers or people like Rob here that then collect your materials all the way from regional outback Australia to as far as Queenstown in New Zealand!
