EPA-COMPLIANT RESOURCE RECOVERY
Australians produce 50 million tonnes of waste each year on average. That’s over 2 tonnes per person.
It’s important to treat our planet with respect. As Australia’s population grows, so does the amount of rubbish. With more demand, house construction, demolition and renovations increase. So we’re working on smart solutions for all that rubbish.
Besides diverting and reducing, we’re recycling and repurposing. We collect, sort, sterilise and recycle construction and demolition waste. Our process follows Environment Protection Agency best practices.
Products made from recycled material use less energy than new material. And diverting garbage from landfill minimises harmful gas emissions.
We’re conscious of reducing our carbon footprint. And we want to make it easy for you to reduce yours too.
SAFE ASBESTOS REMOVAL
Prior to renovation or demolition, test for asbestos.
Asbestos is common in buildings built pre-1990. Thousands of building materials contained the fibre. However, we now know exposure may cause lung cancer and lung disease.
Removing it yourself can be dangerous. If disturbed, particles can release into the air and lodge in your lungs. Even brief exposure may be harmful to your health.
Your health and safety is a top priority for our team. Our certified experts will use proper equipment to remove it responsibly. Learn more about our asbestos removal services.
