Waste Types

Paper/cardboard: Paper and cardboard are baled and sold within the domestic market. The material is reused in the production of new paper and cardboard products.

Plastics: Plastic is also baled and exported to various markets, where plastic (especially film) is highly sought after. Recycled plastic is sorted, cleaned and remanufactured into plastic pellets that directly replace virgin plastic raw materials. The recycled plastic pellets are then used to manufacture a range of products, including automotive components, buckets and containers, and construction materials.

Timber: Demolition timbers form a significant component of the material delivered to the recycling plant. Large lengths of timber are separated and sold to timber joineries for reuse in the manufacture of recycled furniture, doors, and windows. Smaller sections of timber are shredded with a smaller percentage of green waste to produce saleable mulch typically used in the landscaping sectors.

Masonry: Masonry (predominantly concrete and bricks) is crushed to produce a range of saleable road-based materials. These materials are direct replacements for materials traditionally quarried from the earth.

Ferrous and non-ferrous metals: Metals are separated and sold to domestic and export markets and smelted for reuse as a direct replacement for virgin raw materials.
