ReProcessing Construction and Demolition Waste
The ReProcess Tas facility has been designed to receive and handle a wide range of construction, demolition, and industrial waste material.
ReProcess Tas is committed to reducing the impact on landfill from Tasmania’s construction, demolition and industrial waste disposal. With the upcoming Waste and Resource Recovery Bill seeking to implement a waste levy as of 1 November 2021, now is the time to start looking at new methods and means for your construction waste disposal in Tasmania. Not only will using ReProcess Tas to repurpose your construction and demolition waste contribute to a more sustainable industry model, but as of November 2021, it will save you money.
Soil excavation material, concrete rubble, timber and plasterboard and more are all able to be recycled at ReProcess Tas.
Waste Concrete and Bricks
Concrete waste is generated from demolition works, building, road construction and domestic home construction markets.
Bricks are mainly generated from demolition works and domestic home construction markets.
Both products are 100% recyclable
Our facility ensures both products are reprocessed for ornamental landscaping applications plus base materials to be used for under concrete slab base preparation, pavement sub-bases always as a substitute for virgin rock products.
Most timber is generated from demolition works, therefore there is a large limited suitability for recovered timber to be re-used as prime materials.
Due however to the increasing value of hardwood and specialty timber products there is a cost benefit in ensuring this timber material is saved and able to be reused.
Where this is not achievable timber waste is able to be developed into charcoal and carbon for landscape loam material value adding.
All metal products received can be recycled, with 100% recovery.
Reinforcing metals are recovered during concrete reprocessing, with our concrete processers having magnetic belts that separate steel items during concrete screening.
Waste building metals are separated from C&D trade waste as received during our handling and recovery of materials from all delivered loads
Demolition steel is separated and recovered as received into our facility.
Rock and Excavated Stone Waste
This material is able be recovered from civil and site preparation works.
Like concrete and brick, excavated rock and stone is the source of inexpensive aggregate for gravel sub-base pavement materials, again replacing quarry excavated products.
Waste and Demolition Plasterboard
This material is received mainly from the construction and building industry. It is usually difficult to separate from timber and mixed materials.
This material is processed with the gypsum product able to be blended with and used for value adding loam landscaping products.
Waste Soil and Sand
This material is also able be recovered from civil and site preparation works.
Both materials can be processed as high value materials, both replacing the need for purposely sourced excavated materials in landscaping and construction works.
Asphalt material is generated through the civil road construction sector, being 4% bitumen and 96% aggregate. It is 100% recyclable.
Our facility can ensure received product is reprocessed with profiled asphalt material used for building site and private pavement works, plus excavated and mixed waste asphalt is able to be blended with concrete for road base, again replacing quarry excavated products.
Non-Dig Excavated Material Waste
One of the growth areas of recycled material generation is water pressure suction excavated materials from construction, service and communication service maintenance requirements.
Our facilities washing and screening plant is able to remove and separate sludge from the sand and aggregate stone for high quality reprocessed material recovery.
ReProcess Tas is not currently equipped to conduct plastic recycling. However, we are exploring avenues that will allow us to acquire the necessary equipment to add this to our facility.
A major cause of environmental pollution, the ability to conduct plastic recycling is a high priority for ReProcess Tas in order to provide the most valuable and sustainable services we can to the Tasmanian construction industry.
