About ntrs

About Us


ntrs specialises in waste management and the recycling of a range of domestic, commercial and industrial products. NT Recycling Solutions was established in Darwin in February 2005 by Leon Schulz operating a single truck. Today, ntrs operates out of three sites at Berrimah, Winnellie, and the City of Darwin’s Shoal Bay Waste Disposal Facility employing 50 staff and operating close to 30 vehicles.

Our success is due to our commitment to recycling and the environment and our view that all waste material is a potential resource. Our goal is to recover and reuse as much of these valuable resources as possible. By removing disposal costs, recycling is almost always cheaper and is always better for the environment. We understand that all organisations need recycling and waste services designed to meet their unique needs. ntrs is a local service with the specialist capacity to provide organisations with waste management solutions, efficient and effective equipment and comprehensive support & training.
