RecycleCorp (Vanuatu) is Vanuatu’s only dedicated recycling company. RecycleCorp was established by Andrew Hibgame in 2007. Operations are located in the capital Port Vila and in Luganville. The main activity of RecycleCorp is collecting, processing and exporting of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal. Used lead acid batteries and e-waste is also collected and exported. We have recently started a glass collection and the glass is crushed to sand to be used in construction. We took part in a pilot in June 2021 to export the first plastic bottles for recycling from Vanuatu.
RecycleCorp employs around 30 Ni-Vanuatu staff. Employees include skilled workers such as mechanics, machine operators, crane truck drivers and welders as well as labourers.
