About us


Industry Waste Recovery (IWR) stewardship programs facilitate the collection and processing of packaging and waste, across Australia

A cost-effective solution to a serious problem
Industry Waste Recovery is a nationally recognised and supported initiative in collecting and forming usefulness for industry waste. Developed from the Farm Waste Recovery (FWR) stewardship management business, which aims to reduce the number of landfilled polypropylene agricultural bags, Industry Waste Recovery, facilitates the evolutionary growth on an even broader scale. Providing nationally recognised Industry Waste Recovery labelled bags to members of the recovery program and collected by trusted partners and given a new life.

Australians are more aware of the ethical and sustainable aspects of production globally, which influence their purchasing decisions. The demand for sustainable products is resulting in more producers using sustainable credentials as part of their marketing strategies and promotion. By working with an Industry Waste Recovery program, you’re not only supporting the best interests of your community, but the future of the production industry.
