Auswaste FNQ established in 2016 and Auswaste Environmental Services (AES) established in 2018 are both locally owned and operated businesses focussing on waste reduction and management.

We strongly believe in reducing waste and therefore the impact of landfill, re-using and recycling.

With a depot in Cooktown and our Containers for Change depot in Weipa our focus is to keep the Cape beautiful and free of litter getting communities involved in recycling and smarter waste management.

Equipped with a variety of services we will aim high to find a solution for your specific needs.
