Transforming our world through reimagining resources for a circular economy
Natural resources are finite and need to be used in a more sustainable way. This need is moving our society towards a circular economy where recovering resources is a priority, and waste and pollution are designed out of production cycles. At BINGO we are passionate about supporting the transition to a circular economy and we have designed our business model to ensure BINGO plays a role across the circular production cycle.
Our commitment and goals
Maintaining a resource recovery rate of 80% at Group level
Supporting and elevating circular economy with the ACEHub
Committed to achieving 90% recovery rate by 2030
How BINGO leads the way in a circular economy
Turning your waste into a resource at BINGO, we’re committed to keeping your waste out of landfill through our advanced recycling centres. We’re investing in new technology to increase recovery rates - plus we process materials for resale and reuse. That’s good for the environment and good for your business. If you want to reduce waste from your business being sent to landfill, we can help with a sustainable waste management strategy that’s right for you.
Creating and developing an amazing recycling precinct to drive a circular economy
In 2021, BINGO officially opened its newest recycling facility Materials Processing Centre 2 (MPC 2), the world’s largest and most advanced dry mixed waste recycling facility at its Eastern Creek Recycling Ecology Park in Western Sydney.
Fitted with some of the world’s most advanced resource recovery and manufacturing technology, when fully operational the $100 million plant will be capable of diverting approximately 90% of materials from landfill.

Landfill diversion is all about turning waste into a resource, by keeping materials out of landfill and recycling these for a new purpose. The measure of how much waste is recycled or recovered and doesn’t end up in landfill, is called a diversion rate. At BINGO, we’re targeting diversion rates of greater than 75% and we’re achieving this through investing in new separation technology to increase resource recovery. We independently verify our diversion rates – this is industry leading. As part of our “beyond compliance” approach, we commissioned asset auditors Arcadis to undertake an independent verification of resource recovery rates at our Auburn, Minto and St Mary’s recycling centres.
Resource recovery is a process of separating recyclable materials from waste and turning these into new resources to be used again. BINGO's state-of-the-art recycling centres sort and recover 14 different material streams. We also manufacture 5 recycled products from the resources we recover. The five materials we reprocess are: Brick & Concrete Steel Timber Green Waste Paper & Cardboard.
What are the products we produce from the recovered materials: Road Base (Base material: Brick & Concrete) Scrap Metal (Base material: Steel) Mulch (Base material: Timber) Compost (Base material: Green Waste) Recycled Cardboard (Base material: Paper & Cardboard) .
The materials that we recover create a closed loop material flow that feeds back into the building lifecycle. They are used for civil works, infrastructure projects, landscaping, residential and housing.
