3R ReimagineersAdele RoseHawkes BayWaste & RecyclingAt 3R, waste isn’t a problem, it’s an opportunity for environmental and economic benefit. And we’re passionate about helping businesses and their customers responsibly dispose of used products and packaging. Combine this passion with expertise in bringing together individual businesses, industry and government to find innovative outcomes for waste, and it’s a recipe for some seriously good product stewardship solutions.
