There is a new company that has gone gangbusters when it comes to helping sort out the biggest waste issue with the wine industry.

Repost is a Marlborough company that repurposes toxic treated vineyard posts, saving hundreds of tonnes of toxic waste going into landfill and turning it into useable posts for fencing farms.

So far, since the company began during 2020, Repost has diverted 720 tonnes of waste from going to landfill and helped fence almost 1000 kilometres of farmland.

Co-creator of Repost Stu Dudley joined Mike Hosking.
