The Zero Waste Network (formerly Community Recycling Network of Australia) has been a partner in two major pieces of research into Australia's non-profit reuse and recycling sector.

QUT Baseline Study: The first ever research report into the community reuse and recycling (CRE) sector in Australia, which found that CREs divert over 150,000 tonnes of waste each year and creates thousands of jobs.


Center for Social Impact NSW enterprise study: A detailed look at community reuse and recycling enterprises in NSW, focussing on how they measure and communicate their social, financial and environmental impacts.
