If you’re looking to create a circular waste system for part or all of your building, we'll work with your strata manager and resident committee to develop a change program.We facilitate community engagement programs for a diverse range of local communities which incorporate behavioural change, and can support you whether you’re in a pre-development phase or in operation.


From high street to high rise, we take an iterative circular design process in our engagement campaigns and help get your community involved and active in climate action. We analyse local demographic data, map waste streams, gauge precinct interest and appetite for change.

We consult for local councils, property developers and managers across multi unit and mixed use developments, office blocks, and community groups.



Our team understands complex issues in the built environment with our place based design framework and integrated backgrounds in architecture, social and urban planning, community building and zero waste design.


We have a range of composting waste-in-place solution providers across food recycling technology, composting tumblers, worm farm infrastructure and all the essential compost enabling products for a wide range of spatial requirements.

We assess food waste volumes to pinpoint the right composting solution and help you implement it: from determining user flows, coordinating onsite set up installation and how will work with your community to champion behaviour change.

We can help maximise the number of source separation streams to enable the greatest environmental outcomes, and assist you in procurement and developing waste management plans.


We’ve built a pretty awesome network of upstream and downstream circular suppliers who share our regenerative thinking and outlook with their products and services. Our Circular Supplier Network strive to close the loop so you might find the right fit for your business supply chain.

What types of development projects can you help me with?
We work with developers at the design stage to implement better designs for waste rooms, looking at the way waste and recycling flows through a building and offering design choices to minimise contamination and increase the source separation potential to enable participation in current and future recycling and reuse markets.We work at the retrofit stage, and with existing buildings to analyse barriers to change and design transformation programs which include human behaviour. We examine occupant demographics to address behavioural and education needs, and take a lifecycle approach to procurement advice.

Livable buildings need green space, and with the growing issue of food security we can assist in designing and establishing community garden spaces.

If your project is grant dependant and you need assistance developing the application, get in touch and we’ll explore how we can assist.
What do you charge?
Every project and engagement is unique, and our rates vary depending on the project.

50% of all our profits go to scaling up achieving zero waste through supporting and developing new circular economy initiatives with a primary focus on waste in the built environment. To achieve this we offer low-bono rates to not-for-profit, co-operative and social enterprise projects as well as pro-bono support to selected initiatives.
What types of composting infrastructure do you work with?
From traditional to tech solutions, we pride ourselves on knowing who's who in the zoo when it comes to composting waste-in-place. Our network spans food recycling technology, composting tumblers, worm farm infrastructure, and even black soldier fly larvae systems.
What other waste streams do you consult on?
Upstream and downstream circular solutions, specifically focused in the food systems and multi-use development space: this includes Co-mingled, Cardboard, Soft plastics, E-waste and General Waste.
Where do you source your supplies from?
We work with like minded, aligned social enterprises, NFPs, organisations, B Corps and have created a dedicated circular supplier network committed to our values and ethos: people, purpose, planet!
Can you help engage my community?
Community engagement is a key area for us, and we work with your communications team and their strategic goals. We can help with graphics, copywriting, and direct engagement - whether that's through workshops or face to face consultation.

Our soft plastics program is available in Oct 2022.

Do something drastic & cut the plastic. Single-use plastic food packaging is a major contributor to the global solid waste problem. Although the food industry is developing strategies to reduce single-use plastic packaging, we need to better understand consumer awareness and attitudes about the issue.

When you toss a plastic bottle into your recycling bin, there’s no guarantee it actually gets recycled. In fact, odds are, it doesn’t. 

This is one of our key priority streams, where by using the same containers, in the same form, over and over again – it eases demand for virgin materials, reduces energy needed to spit out thousands of new plastic bottles or cardboard boxes, and prevents heaps of trash from ending up in landfills or oceans.

They’re bulky, large in size and consumes large amounts of space.

We use paper and cardboard in so much packaging and stacks of it still ends up in landfill, resulting in stacks of methane production, a major greenhouse gas.

When when you recycle cardboard waste and keep it free of oil and contamination, you end up saving ample amounts of water and energy and minimise trees being chopped down to get virgin material.

Cigarette butts are the world’s most littered plastic item, with around 7 billion dropped in Australia every year. In partnership with Fungi Solutions, CigCycle collected cigarette butts will undergo a Myco-Remediation program (mushrooms, FYI) at their Thornbury myco-facility for research and development for new circular materials.
