Salters was founded in 1980 and quickly established itself as the industry leader in the hazardous recycling disposal market in NZ. We recognized early the move towards ‘green service stations’, and expanded our services, collection fleet and vacuum tanks. We became the first transport company in New Zealand to be AS/NZS 14001:2004 accredited.

We are headquartered in Manukau City, Auckland, and provide coverage across the North Island with our modern truck fleet, one of the country’s largest specialist operations.

Salters Group companies are focused on three core areas:

  • Waste Oil Collection and Recovery Services: We are a one-stop total disposal service for waste oil from the major oil companies, as well as shipping and automotive industries. We have over 6000 sites between Cape Reinga and Turangi thanks to our partnership with major oil companies such as Shell, BP, Castrol, Elf and Total Oils.
  • Oil Recovery Services: We are the contractors for Auckland City Council’s Oil Recycling initiative which is now solely run by us.  We collect recycled oil from drop-off bins located around the region and dispose of it safely.  The bins are collected weekly and on average 6,500 litres are recovered weekly from the drop-off locations. This amount is growing as more and more homeowners are aware of the service and the need to protect our environment.  For information on how to use this service, please visit
