About Us

Total Bins is a family business, based in Wellington, with warehousing in Auckland and Wellington. It’s owned by Steven and India Korner who returned from Melbourne three years ago because they wanted to raise their family in New Zealand.

Steven graduated from Canterbury University with First Class Honours in Mechanical Engineering, having initially qualified as a physiotherapist at Otago University. He worked at Fisher and Paykel Healthcare for five years where he led the team designing the award-winning products for neonatal care. He gained real insight into the design of plastics and product development – skills he’s now harnessing at Total Bins.

India gained a degree in Graphic Design from Massey University, then worked as a commercial leasing broker at Colliers International, in Auckland. Her time there coincided with a global move towards sustainability, especially in the corporate sector, and the creation of the New Zealand Green Building Council. India’s commercial experience helped her to understand how corporate offices work and she became very interested in the environmental tide change. She is an accredited Green star professional so she understands the latest green building development and techniques.

Steven and India are committed to environmental awareness; they want their young family (of two, to date!) to experience the best New Zealand has to offer. They enjoy the challenges of meeting all their customers’ requirements and are determined to provide practical, effective and stylish solutions to make recycling and waste disposal less of a chore and more of a simple part of everyday life.
