We’re committed to building successful recycling schemes
We bring together functional experts from IT, Marketing, Finance and Customer Service, who are motivated every day by the opportunities to make a difference to our community and environment.
We operate in a unique way that makes us both leaders in our own business and hands-on with our partners, both as new schemes scale up and in their continuous development.
Agile and adaptable we are good at solving problems and tackling opportunities from the ground up. We work hard every day to meet the varied needs of a range of schemes and partners, helping them to increase recycling rates.
CES was formed in 2017 as a joint venture between Lion and Coca-Cola Europacific Partners to tackle the mounting waste crisis.
Our role is to drive a genuine circular economy for packaging. As a key enabler of large-scale Container Deposit Schemes (CDS - 10c refund for eligible containers) we have helped to increase recycling rates and diverted billions of beverage containers from landfill.
We work closely with scheme coordinators, beverage manufacturers, governments, and recycling operators to deliver end-to-end support in the development and oversight of container deposit schemes. Since we started, we have grown rapidly, establishing our headquarters in North Sydney with extended teams in Melbourne and Manila. We have a strong culture with our people galvanised by our mission to ensure valuable materials are recycled and not wasted.
With our broad capability, knowledge and experience we are proud to build and grow highly successful recycling schemes, and we are only just getting started.
