About Pioneer Group


As a New Zealand family owned & operated business Pioneer Waste & Recycling Equipment supply top quality New Zealand made and imported machinery for recycling and waste handling. We source from Ireland, U.K & Europe to ensure up to date safety levels, cutting edge design and quality manufacture.

Our mission is to help New Zealanders to recycle and preserve a clean environment, by reducing the volume of landfill waste. Our machines help improve the efficiency and profitability of your establishment, and also reduce your carbon footprint.

In addition to the extensive range of compacting machinery we also sell bins, recycling stations, shredders, glass crushers, magnetic separators, conveyors & sort lines, briquetters and other specialty machinery.

With over 20 years of experience in waste management, Arne has a great head for business and knowledge of our customers’ needs.
