Recycling at Emu Ridge
Some of the ways we recycle at Emu Ridge on Kangaroo Island.
We send out a lot of online orders for our national and overseas customers. If you follow our business you would know that we love to recycle in any way we can, here we are recycling packing materials! We receive used bubble wrap from KI Crash Repairs our local crash repairer and empty screw and bolt containers from our local hardware store M1o, Josh Shepard Electrical and Home Hardware supply us with our larger boxes & sometimes the locals just drop of unwanted packing material which is a great help!
These two lovely girls are volunteers, cutting up all of our recycled bubble wrap are finding out what Aussie life is all about. Candy is a Wwoofer from Toronto in Canada and Madison is from the US and is volunteering through Workaway.

We also wrap all of our glass products purchased by customers in our retail sales and orders in the unpurchased newspapers from our local Drakes store.
Did you know the majority of our site at Emu Ridge was built from recycled materials. Our retail shop was once the material from our shearing shed. We reuse our boiled leaves back in the fire for fuel and sell it as mulch.
