Meet the team

Meet ‘the Recyclables’.

All the characters (except the Maxs) in our Fight the Landfill campaign are 100% recyclable and can make a return as long as they don’t go into your black bags (the Maxs) and onto landfill.

The Recyclables’ third Rule of Combat
GIVE THE RECYCLABLES A SECOND CRACK AT LIFE

Blu Topp

Blu Topp

Milk bottle

“Recycling’s something we can all get in behind.”

Blu’s a retired farmer but he still misses the farm. He’s an HDPE plastic rugged type. He’s hard working, no nonsense, rugged, kind and practical.

Olive

Olive

Olive oil bottle

“Today I am Olive, tomorrow I’m Olive! I’m 100% recyclable and can be remade again and again.”

Olive’s from a blended family. She’s refined, has a pureness about her but is often pressed for time. She’s fond of Jarenzo but finds his smoothness a bit rich.

Buzz

Buzz

Aluminium can

“I take recycling to the extreme!”

Buzz used to be an energy drink. He’s fast and frantic and gets a rush base-jumping off the fridge into the recycling bin.

Iggy

Iggy

Egg carton

“Carrie says I’m cardboard, not paper.”

Iggy’s a bit of an egg. He never quite gets it — and he’s always the last to catch on. The other recyclables have to go over things with him twice.

Tina

Tina

Tuna tin

“Rubbish in the recycling bin really pulls at my ring-tab.”

Tina’s a discarded tuna tin. She always thinks something fishy is going on and hates it when people put rubbish in the recycling bin.

PETE

PETE

PETE drink bottle

Blu’s dog is PETE – a ‘bitsa’

Jarenzo

Jarenzo

Pasta sauce jar — no relation to the bottles

“Yesterday the bottle, today the Jarenzo. Recyclable, re-makeable, remarkable.”

Jarenzo’s rich in character and very smooth (like pasta sauce). A little of him goes a long way. Olive’s always telling him to “keep a lid on it”. They’re quite a pair Jarenzo and Olive — real foodies.

Crystelle

Crystelle

Clear RTD bottle

“Message in a bottle? Recycle me!”

Crystelle enjoys her life at Uni and is out to get the party started! Buzz has a huge crush on her.

Carrie

Carrie

Paper and cardboard stack

“Ok, so we’re the bit on the side, the collector’s item and 100% recyclable.”

Carrie’s the mother goose. She sorts the loose paper and cardboard so they’re all neatly tied and beside the recycling bin on collection day.

Sebastian Stubbs

Sebastian Stubbs

Green beer bottle

“This body’s not rubbish – it’s glass.  Pure, strong and endlessly recyclable.”

Sebastian’s a brew and is known as ‘pure happiness in a glass’.

He keeps an eye on Crystelle while her family are away and makes sure that her uni studies are in balance with her social life.

and then there's...the maxs

The Maxs

Rubbish bags

“Those recyclables are starting to mess with our patch.”

These guys just want the lot. Smelly, greedy wasters who talk rubbish! “Wasting resources — who cares?” huffs Max Bags, while Max Weight sneers. Watch them — they want the Recyclables.
