Success Stories

Viktor AKA
Recycle Man

Viktor is a young man who lives in the western suburbs of Perth, an area also known as the Golden Triangle.  Vik went to several local schools and after leaving school he worked at an Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) earning as little as $2 an hour.  Although Viko lived in the Golden Triangle he didn't always have a glowing golden record of fitting in. Viko has always been a bit of a square peg in a round hole, a fellow with a bit too much life, too much energy and a typical Australian larrikin sense of humour.  As such he didn't gel with tight regimented organisations such as school and formal workplaces.  Viko likes to have a laugh and get things done in his own time.

Late in 2021, after several aborted attempts at working at ADE and filling his days with "life skills" Viko launched RecyclemanPerth.  An opportunity for his community to help him by providing work in his community.  Viko started collecting eligible containers under the Containers4change Scheme and recycling them at the local centre in Shenton Park.   The community of the Golden Triangle now provide Vik with meaningful work and help Vik work towards his goal of being independent.  All this while saving the environment.

Vik's hero is Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Dwayne is a multi-talented individual who worked hard to find his place in life.  Through Recycleman Perth Vik is striving to be the best that he can be, just like his hero.

Shredding Boxes

Brandon is a young man with Autism, who after completing school began looking for employment opportunities.

After being unable to find a job that could accommodate his special needs, with the help of his mum Simone, started a small paper shredding business called Brandon’s Shredding Boxes.

We offer small sized bins (he calls boxes) to homes and local businesses in the area. The boxes are used for discarded office paper that had previously gone into their regular bins and was not recycled. Many of these businesses did not have a recycling programme or alternatively those that did shred their own documents found it very time consuming.

So, we discovered a perfect match between what Brandon was capable of doing, and local homes and businesses that wanted to participate in recycling. Local businesses also had an opportunity to support a person living with a disability and in turn support the Community.

Brandon has over 150 customers and his story has become an inspiration to many people. Brandon is proof that an individual who is living with a disability can still manage to contribute to society and give back to the Community in a positive way.
