APR has established it's packing sheds in Melbourne and surrounding suburbs, with it's own baling and sorting facilities and it's willingness to contract process. APR see's itself as the market leader offering it's services to many of Australia's leading recycling companies.
APR opened it’s first packing shed back in 2002 in Springvale. As the business developed quickly we out grew the Springvale shed by 2004. We moved the operation to Dandenong South. This suited us well, but still needed more room and closer access to the freeway. We moved again to a more accessible spot for our drivers and contractors. We are now situated at 60-64 Thomas Murrell Crescent Dandenong South.

Specialising in Circularity of Recyclable Materials
APR Kerbside is an Australian family owned business that specialises in glass out innovation, ensuring quality products in and out and circularity of recyclable materials.
The APR Kerbside Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in Truganina is the only one in Victoria that doesn’t accept glass. Improving the separation of household recyclables and having no glass in the kerbside commingled recyclable stream has led to a significant improvement in the quality of all recyclables.
Municipal councils who have partnered with APR over the last two years have seen first hand, the substantial benefits of having no glass in the commingled stream.
