Construction & Demolition

Construction & Demolition (C&D) material is comprised of mixed heavy loads which usually contain a combination of timber, concrete, bricks, tile, rubble, metal, plastics, plasterboard, cardboard and paper. This material stream is typically generated through all stages of construction, site clean-ups and domestic clean-ups.

 

Building Construction & Demolition at a Glance

SUEZ can provide a variety of collection and resource recovery solutions for Construction & Demolition waste materials.

Our segment managers will work with you to determine the requirements of your large or small scale building or construction venture to determine the most effective, and safest way to collect and remove waste materials from your site. We will help you maximise resource recovery outcomes, improve environmental sustainability and reduce waste to landfill.

SUEZ can also quickly and efficiently provide builder's bins, skip bins and bulk bins at competitive rates for short-term hire.

Collection Systems

Construction & Demolition material is collected in the following systems* which can be adapted to suit your site.

What happens after we've collected building waste materials?

Once received at a SUEZ Resource Recovery Facility, material is mechanically and manually sorted, with the ferrous and non-ferrous metals, inert fractions (bricks, concrete etc) and non-recyclables removed from the dry (combustible) portion of this material stream.

 

All salvaged metals are shipped to specialist external companies for sorting and recycling. The inert fractions are recycled and resupplied to the civil construction market as an alternative to traditional quarried products.

The dry material can then be manufactured into Processed Engineered Fuel (PEF) for use as an alternative to traditional fossil fuels.

SUEZ-ResourceCo C&D Resource Recovery Facilities

Through our joint venture operation, SUEZ-ResourceCo, we operate dedicated C&D Resource Recovery Facilities in Hampton Park, Victoria and also Wingfield in South Australia. The SUEZ-ResourceCo facilities receive both clean and unclean C&D material streams, as well as large volumes of mixed and clean fill materials. It provides an integrated resource recovery solution that diverts C&D waste away from landfill, by maximising the recovery of recyclable materials. 

The first fully integrated SUEZ-ResourceCo plant was commissioned in November 2006 in Wingfield, South Australia. The fully automated plant sorts, sizes and extracts various matter and associated by-products from commercial waste streams in order to generate Process Engineered Fuel as a replacement for fossil fuels; the end use being power generation and cement manufacturing. The Wingfield facility has the capability to manufacture up to 350,000 tonnes of raw material per annum into approximately 100,000 to 150,000 tonnes of Process Engineered Fuel and was the first of its kind in Australia.
