Company Overview

Company Overview

Recycle & Composting Equipment P/L (RCE) are suppliers of Composting Equipment, Flail & Disc Mowers, Sandbaggers, Mini Crushers and small Waste Grinders.  These are not cheap Australian copies, they are the real thing.


Today’s solutions to tomorrows waste.  Sell the real deal.
With superior products at better prices that will work for you.

Recycle & Composting Equipment P/L is now under NEW OWNERSHIP under the direction of  Wayne Pickworth, who was originally  involved with the start up of the company along with his father in 2000.  Colin has now been retired from all of RCE’s operations and management decisions and enjoying the grey hair nomad lifestyle.  Wayne rejoined the company in 2011 and took control in April 2012 to expand the business, its market share and its reputation.


RCE has an ever growing amount of products that are sourced from the original manufacturers around the world that have years (in most cases over 25 to 30 years) of research and development into their products.  We do not make copies of other companies’ products or reproduce them as Australian made in order to make money.  We care about the customer and will only sell equipment that is proven in the market and will produce the end result that is required by the industry and the customer.  Ask your Compost Turner seller for their history to insure you are not just getting a copy of someone else’s hard work.

RCE imports the equipment as required by orders.  Sorry we do not carry stock in Australia, as to do so will increase the running costs for the company, which in turn would have a flow-on effect to our buyers.  Delivery times in most instances is around 6 to 8 weeks, this may vary if machines are not in stock or need to be custom built to suit customers requirements.

RCE was established in 2000 to supply the Green Waste Industry with a way of reusing, recycling and composting the Green Waste into a product that can be used as a safer and greener end product for today’s markets.  We don’t just have the equipment, we can assist in giving you the” how to produce” with the ever changing world.  We also have a great and ever expanding network of people in the industry that will also help you with producing and ongoing management of your products.


Recycle & Composting Equipment can supply machinery to assist in converting waste water, livestock manure and mortalities, land clearing and building and construction waste into reusable eco friendly by-products such as compost, mulch, road base, new animal bedding and Composted Animal bedding, all these are ways to save you money and the environment in the long run.

Why wait till the waters are at the doors or when you have a problem with your pipe shifting or even rolling away. Keep your supply of Sand bags on standby with the Sandbagger.

With the self contained power unit you can move the bagger to where you need it & produce in large quantities, over 1600 sand bags an hour are possible with this unit. The gravity type units can be supplied in both the 4 chute and 2 chute baggers. 4 chutes gravity-fed can bag 700 to 900 bags per hour and the 2 chutes gravity-fed model will fill 400-500 bags per hour, depending on the material and manpower.

Most locally made machines will only produce around the 200 bags per hour and when your property is about to be flooded.  What machine would you prefer to have outside trying to save you?

The operator simply presses a foot pedal to activate the flow of sand into the bag and then releases the foot pedal to stop the flow. This equipment is self-contained, lightweight, and transportable in a pickup truck bed. A ladder is provided to manually probe the material in the hopper when necessary with the gravity units. Optional towing package available.

RCE has donated thousands of sandbags over the years to different State Emergency Services & Councils to assist with their flood prevention work.

In the USA City of Chicago two Fire Station had a competition to see which station house could produce the most filled sand bags in one hour. Both had a team of ten, nine to fill the bags and one to operate the skid steer loader to keep the sand flowing. Both fire houses filled over 2300 bags within the one hour time period.
