With the aim of delivering a positive environmental outcome, Repurpose It, established a niche in construction and demolition waste materials, assisting with resource recovery in Victoria. The company identified an opportunity to recover sands and aggregates from waste soil.
Through liaising with waste management stakeholders and obtaining an EPA licence in order to receive and process contaminated soil, Repurpose It successfully launched its Washing Plant.
Repurpose It diverted 148,567 tonnes from landfill in its washing process and produced 141,000 tonnes of materials to substitute virgin extractive resource.
