Substation33 is a Brisbane-based social enterprise that has operated since 2012.

It was founded to respond to the need to provide a workplace where people from long term unemployment and marginalised backgrounds could gain confidence and skills to transition to sustainable employment.

A second motivator was to address the increasing amount of electronic equipment going to landfill – to recycle, repurpose and reuse e-waste thereby reducing the negative impact on the environment.

Over a decade on, Substation33 is a vibrant and successful social enterprise. Employing approximately 40 staff, since 2019 Substation33 has assisted more than 500 people in their transition to mainstream employment and/or training and further education.

Substation33 is well known for their inclusion of people from diverse backgrounds and abilities.

SubStation33 is committed to improving our social and ecological environment, working with others to provide opportunities for disadvantaged people and who are devoted to repurposing e-waste into innovative products.

KJR’s Brisbane office donates its used hardware (screens, laptops, cables, digital phones) to Substation33 for recycling or repurposing.

By partnering with Substation33, KJR is assisting people from marginalised backgrounds with sustainable employment opportunities plus reducing the negative impact on our environment .


Outlook is a Victorian social enterprise. Outlook’s purpose is to create and facilitate sustainable opportunities for people with a disability to live, work and play within our communities.

KJR partners with Outlook’s environmental branch to recycle our used hardware.

As a socially responsible organisation operating within the technology sector, KJR recognises the importance of protecting the environment and reducing the impact of our operations on the planet.

Whilst we are not a manufacturer, distributor or reseller of technology hardware, KJR purchases and owns an array of devices that support our ability to deliver services in software quality assurance for our customers and partners.

Outlook undertakes the recycling and reusing of laptops, screens and other unused hardware from KJR’s Melbourne office as needed, selling them for their own financial benefit.

An inclusive society for all

All profits derived from Outlook’s social enterprise operations are reinvested back into the organisation, to support Outlook’s purpose of growing, promoting and advocating an inclusive community.

Outlook is staffed by NDIS-funded employees. By partnering with Outlook, KJR is assisting with providing sustainable employment opportunities to people living with disabilities.

Choosing to donate and discard our devices with Outlook not only ensures KJR plays our part in protecting the environment but also supports the growth, development and future of local communities across Victoria.
