We are Supertrash, a small, family-run collection service with a big purpose; to help divert waste from landfill through circular solutions.

Each month we help our customers divert over 200,000 kgs of Aucklands waste from landfill.

Our story

Back in 2009, Steve Rickerby was working at an insurance company in the city. They were separating waste in to organics, recycling and general waste but the organic waste was just heading to landfill with the rubbish. Steve decided to solve that problem and launched We Compost collections with one bin of coffee grinds on the back of his ute. Turns out he was much better at picking up bins than he was at selling insurance and he has never looked back!
