Recycling & Reducing the Prices of Concrete Products

From Concrete, Steel, Aluminium to Copper – Our War on Waste

ABC’s War on Waste got us thinking about waste and recycling here in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire and Campbelltown. We deliver and pick up skip bins in these areas almost daily. The rubbish is sorted and recycled wherever possible – but what about all the waste we don’t see? How much could be repurposed into products at lower prices than virgin materials? Statistics from the NSW government say that we produce more and more waste every year, with only 64% being recycled(*1).

Haven’t seen ABC’s War on Waste? Here is a short clip from the show.


Repurposing Waste & Reducing the Environmental and Economic Prices we Pay for Landfills – One Skip Bin at a Time.

The statistics are definitely not looking good, but the positive thing is that we have the resources and technology to recycle and repurpose.

What is Meant by Repurposing?

When we repurpose materials, we are reducing our reliance on finding virgin materials (which are becoming increasingly costly). Local councils and landscaping businesses in particular benefit from recycled concrete materials that have been repurposed into gravel and aggregate.

Benefits of Using Recycled Materials

Our War on Waste in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire, Campbelltown, and Other Sydney Suburbs

All the rubbish we collect in our skips goes to our Wetherill Park depot. It is then sorted in a similar way to how the presenter sorts the waste in the clip above. However, our waste sorting is much larger because we supply skip bins for commercial, industrial, and residential projects. Some of the skips are filled with concrete or building debris. Others have a mixture of general waste (or things that could have been separated for recycling or repurposing). Many people hire skip bins for backyard clean-ups, so we also receive green waste that can be turned into mulch.

Waste Statistics

• The average individual creates 9% more waste yearly (*3). Aussies are massive plastics consumers and unfortunately, we throw away 81% of our household plastics (most of which is recyclable). Much of this is being leaked into our green areas, waterways, and oceans. As a nation, every hour, we dump the equivalent of 1,280 kilograms of plastics into our oceans(*3).
Overall, Australia’s waste levels are increasing by 17% each year!(*3)
Recycling rates are sitting at 64%(*3,4).
The construction and demolition industry is leading the way in recycling. They recycle 76% of their waste materials through companies like ours, which have the equipment to process and repurpose masonry waste(*4).
