A little about me ( JJ - Aka the Captain of the ship ) - What I value...
- Integrity & Honesty, please don’t apply if this is not you. We love like-minded people who are passionate about recycling, cultural diversity, equality, who are honest and hardworking. We work hard but we have been known to play hard too! Punctuality : much of the work that we do can be time-sensitive, we are not unrealistic in our expectations but we do run a busy ship. We don’t often work OT but when required we all pull together to get the job done!
- We are a small team and getting the right personality to work with is imperative to our success and the fun that we enjoy at work.

I (JJ) hang in the upstairs digs while Andrea works remotely from the Sunny Coast.
