Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Our focus is on the redirection of waste away from landfill to alternative uses. 

Not all our waste goes through our facility, so we use businesses and other waste disposal facilities that continue the sorting process. These companies apply a high level of extraction and resource recovery than is possible in our facility.  All waste goes through some form of reduction or recycling into saleable items or bio-energy. 

We collect dry no putrescible waste that has high recyclable potential. For example, building and construction waste, household, business,  factory and household clean up waste.

Collected dry waste is sorted and separated into reusable materials. The waste materials pass through a sorting process that reclaims materials such as timber, concrete, metals, green waste etc. in preparation for recycling.

Products like recycled crushed concrete have a lower carbon footprint than equivalent new product extracted from a quarry [read more]. Items such as cardboard now use up to 90% of recycled cardboard in the manufacture of new products.

Local Councils such as Redlands have information to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Brisbane City Council also provides valuable information on its website so residents can inform themselves on what their local council does to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
