Diversion and Circular Economy

Help our Push for a Waste Free Australia

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.

What is landfill diversion?

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.

What is resource recovery?

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:
  1. Brick & Concrete
  2. Steel
  3. Timber
  4. Green Waste
  5. Paper & Cardboard

What are the products you produce from the recovered materials?

What are the products we produce from the recovered materials:
  1. Road Base (Base material: Brick & Concrete)
  2. Scrap Metal (Base material: Steel)
  3. Mulch (Base material: Timber)
  4. Compost (Base material: Green Waste)
  5. Recycled Cardboard (Base material: Paper & Cardboard)

What happens to the materials we recover?

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.

Take a look at the tonnes of materials we recovered in 2018. To learn more about waste management strategies and our drive to increase diversion rates of waste contact us.
