Moreton Bay Recycling reuses or recycles more than 99.9 percent of the clean concrete waste delivered to its Narangba facility, processing more than 72,000 tonnes each year.
It’s a strategy that won managing director Rory Crundall and his team the Environment & Sustainability Excellence Award at this year’s Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Awards.
Moreton Bay Recycling constantly strives to improve its recycling processes and with the region’s rapid growth the company expects there will be more demand for the business’s services.
The company accepts clean concrete waste from building and demolition projects, processing it onsite to create quality recycled concrete products.
About Moreton Bay Recycling
Rory says all staff at the 10-year-old Narangba company work tirelessly and winning the Environment & Sustainability Excellence Award at this year’s Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Awards is fitting recognition of their efforts.
“We have the best team around us – they work extremely hard day in, day out and it’s hard to show them the tangible results of what they do
“For me, the meaning of the award is to show the team that they are working towards something,” Rory says.
Moreton Bay Recycling’s concrete disposal yard offers businesses that produce concrete waste a convenient, more sustainable, and more affordable alternative to landfill.
They use the waste to create alternatives to gravels and rocks, which enables Moreton Bay Recycling to get more value from concrete that’s already been produced — and lowers demand for quarry products, which reduces the environmental impact of local projects.
Customers can drop off clean concrete waste and pick up quality recycled concrete products in one place, further reducing their environmental footprint – or they can have their orders delivered.
“And we offer more sustainable and affordable alternatives to gravels and rocks, with quality recycled concrete aggregates and other products,” Rory says.
The products include recycled aggregate, drainage recycled aggregate, compactable fill material and crusher dust that are used by builders, plumbers and landscapers for garden beds, under turf, building pads, under roads, paths, driveways and slabs, drainage, decorative rock, retaining wall filling and pipework drainage.
Rory says Moreton Bay Recycling reuses or recycles more than 99.9 percent of the waste they receive, processing more than 72,000 tonnes a year.
He says concrete delivery is increasing and Moreton Bay Recycling hopes to expand into different streams of waste to prevent other materials going to landfill.
Rory says the Moreton Bay Region’s the perfect place for businesses to thrive.
“The region itself, the Council, the opportunities are just amazing.
“If you want to start a business in Moreton Bay, I would highly recommend it – the support from Council is amazing.”
