Who is EcoBin Australia?

Ecobin was born from humble beginnings; when CEO John Engelander noticed that unlike at home, waste wasn’t being separated in the workplace. This oversight meant an enormous amount of waste was unnecessarily going to landfill when instead at least half of it could have been recycled or composted.

Separating waste at the source (the moment at which you chuck your rubbish in the bin) helps to decrease damaging greenhouse gases and the production of virgin materials.

Today our signature 4 bin waste separation system is Australia’s favourite and can be seen throughout the country in schools, offices, universities and government buildings.

Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. We consider ‘How’ we make things, because the ‘Why’ we do things is even more important.


There are three prizes up for grabs, with vouchers going to the first, second and third prize from EcoBin Australia:
