Segregate Your Waste Streams to Save Money

Product Recovery Industries launches educational program for construction, civil & demolition businesses.

As the increasing cost of landfill levy continues to rise and the cost of processing the surplus materials left behind or collected from the civil & demolition sector grows. The need to separate and segregate your inert materials on site, so they can be recycled at a cheaper price than the mixed stockpile processing of construction waste is providing significant cost savings.

Have a look at the cost of tipping mixed construction waste at our facility in 34 Jackson Street compared with other sites & landfills in the local area. You will quickly see that any time spent on site with plant or labour to get a cleaner waste stream to the gatehouse or weighbridge is going to save you money.

If your site / project is tight for space we can always come to you to process the materials on site. Or use commingled recycling skips which would require a little more processing cost with increased tipping rates.
The key thing to remember is that you pay the landfill levy on the tonne at the weighbridge in any supply chain. Weather you process and control the materials & waste on site or allow your subcontractors to do if for you. Why not ask the question… “where are you taking that to dispose of it”?

Cover yourselves with regards to environmental risk, corporate social responsibility, brand image and potentially arrange for the collection of these materials with us direct rather than paying a third party a tidy profit margin with no control on the actual volume or tonnage of waste delivered to the landfill from your various projects or sites.

State Govenment Backs Recycling With Grant

State Government launches the RCPP. (Recycled Construction Product Program).
As part of the “closed loop” thinking around the continued use of recycled materials generated from Construction, Civil & demo waste in the state (which represents around half of all waste produced in Perth). The government has launched the RCPP grant scheme to encourage the use of recycled materials by specifiers, local government customers and the private sector. All you need to do is speak to a Licenced site that complies with the new end of waste guidelines for their material testing regime.

This $10 Million state grant was announced by the Minister for the Environment in September 2015 at the Waste Recycling Conference in Fremantle; with further details on how to claim the grant (up to $6 per tonne in pre-allocated funds for using recycled road base) released to the media in March 2016.

Why not contact us the leading suppliers of recycled materials in Perth to find out more information about the RCPP and if your project is able to claim the grant with its increased testing regime to generate some certainly that the quality material we supply complies with DER “End of Waste” guidelines. As industry leaders who were involved in the initial Dept. Environmental Regulation workshops in October 2014 on the new “End of Waste” guidelines. We can offer some suggestions as to how to avoid your project incurring extra risk & the potential of having it listed on its deed as Contaminated Land, when using an un-registered facility or poor recycling process to manage your inert waste material recycling needs on your future land development or civils works project.

Recycling Industry Grows Market Share

Product Recovery Industries grows its construction, civil & demolition market share to a third of all waste produced in Western Australia.

Since the acquisition of the largest recycling processing site in metropolitan Perth in January 2016; the Product Recovery Industries Pty Ltd. group of companies now has around a third of all Construction & Demolition waste processing in the state under Dept. of Environmental Regulation (DER) License in Perth.

Around Six Million tonnes of Construction, Civil & Demolition waste is generated in Perth every year. Representing around 50% of all the waste generated in the wider City by other commercial & municipal sectors. Approximately One Million tonnes are licensed to be processed at Product Recovery Industries sites in Perth.

The long term purchasing security provided to our clients via this large tonnage capacity & our strong supply chain, processing and recycle this waste in a licensed manner. This enables major projects that require these high levels of waste volumes to be processed to maintain our long term tendering and pricing structures. Without recycling & the use of recycled materials on our infrastructure & capital projects works, the increased cost to the private sector, tax payer & wider economy would be considerable. Not to mention the savings available to the wider environment & social benefits of less quarry trucks on the road.

Landfill Levy Increases

State Government increases landfill levy

When you landfill your waste you could potentially incur landfill levy charges in your supply chain.

In July 2016 this is climbing from $60 per m3 up to $75 per m3. By mid 2018 it’s going to be $105 per m3 in levy costs for your inert material to be sent to landfill. Or around $2,000 in tax / levy for a typical semi trailer load, paid by the landfill provider or by inadequate recycling processors to the state government, if you don’t dispose of your waste at a licenced Department of Environmental Regulation recycling facility with high recycling rates.
