Fit for purpose, tangible solutions in creating a new culture of environmentally responsible waste management.

Drain Buddy

Stormwater drains are designed to catch excess rain and groundwater, to prevent flooding in urban streets. These drains lead into our waterways, meaning whatever goes in – water or other – either becomes pollution in our oceans or gets lodged inside the pit, increasing the risk of flooding. Polluted oceans and waterways threaten the environment, and drains blocked by rubbish and/or organic debris can be costly to clean. 

Drain Buddy features 

  • Sturdy frame made of aluminium or recycled plastic
  • Different filtration mediums to capture a large variety of waste
  • Modular to fit any shape/size drain
  • High flow rates with stage 2 filtration
  • Catches rubbish and organic debris
  • Simple to install
  • Prevents costly blockages
  • Cost effective

How does a Drain Buddy work?

Drain Buddy is an easy to install, modular system that can be adapted to any new or existing stormwater pit. The heavy-duty basket catches rubbish, organic debris and sediment, allowing only excess water past.

Where will Drain Buddy work best?

Drain Buddy is ideal for unprotected stormwater drains in rubbish prone areas, such as shopping centres, beaches, parks, schools, CBD, and quick service restaurants. We have installed thousands of systems throughout Australia.

Car Stops from Co-Mingled waste Plastic

Our car stops are made from co-mingled plastics and soft plastics that was destined for land fill. Often made in conjunction with our partners to achieve specific waste and landfill reduction targets, the car stops are created with new technology developed by NewTech Poly.

The installation of the car stops allows for a circular result for our clients – collection of rubbish, reuse of the commingled plastics into a usable product and finally client use of the product.

Each car stop is over 10kg allowing large volumes of plastic to be diverted from landfill.  Just recently over 2 tonnes of waste plastic collected from the Yarra River and single use grain bags from farmers were used to make over 200 car stops at a shopping centre in Melbourne.
