Keeping waste out of landfill​

and creating jobs for people who need them most

Why choose Soft Landing?

We choose recycling methods with the least environmental footprint. 

This means we: 
  • Avoid recycling methods that reduce cost at the expense of the environment
  • Avoid recycling methods that are big users of power
  • Choose methods that maximise re-use of materials
  • Keep our by-products in Australia, supporting local companies and reducing transport mileage.

and bed bases to local industry (where there is a market) for mulch.
