Council partnerships are a mainstay of SCRgroup, and we are extremely flexible about meeting council needs and goals. SCR Group provides strategic, convenient and cost-effective council resource recovery programs, including customisable clothing and electrical drop-off hubs, residential kerbside collections and pop-up recycling drive-thru events. All of our programs enable councils to:
- Meet ethics and sustainability goals
- Reduce waste to landfill
- Save costs on landfill fees
- Minimise illegal dumping
- Offer local employment opportunities
- Provide convenient, free and accessible hubs for local residents to drop-off their unwanted items in an ethical and responsible way
- Report on their social procurement from data provided by SCR Group
Pop-Up Drive Thru Recycling Days
Our Pop-Up Drive Thru Recycling Days are usually run on a designated Saturday in a large space provided by council (i.e. a large car park) for local residents to come by and drop-off their larger unwanted items, such as mattresses, furniture, whitegoods and other household items.
At the time of the event, SCR Group provides staff and traffic management, coordinating the whole event from start to finish with no need for logistics or supply chain management on the part of the local council. We’ll handle it all.

Residential Kerbside Collections
Our kerbside collection program, Homecycle, occurs on the day after normal recycling collections and are co-designed and branded in collaboration with councils. They provide a convenient service for residents to reuse and recycle their unwanted clothing and homewares in the comfort of their own homes.
SCR Group delivers marketing support and marketing collateral to councils to help promote the program, as well as SMS/email reminder services and targeted social media campaigns. We also run the entire collection process which usually lasts two weeks, providing detailed collection reports and audits.
