Victoria generate more than 5.3 million tonnes of construction and demolition waste every year. Queensland generates more than 3.8 million tonnes. All the while, hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste glass are being stockpiled and landfilled.
With recycling facilities throughout Victoria and Queensland, Green Roads by Alex Fraser recycles more than 3.5 million tonnes of construction materials and waste glass, annually.
We take refuse concrete, asphalt, brick, stone and glass and process it into new high quality materials for major infrastructure works, like roads, bridges and pavements.
We are staunchly committed to reducing the environmental impact of development and the sustainable use of resources. Every year, our network of facilities recover, recycle and repurpose approximately a third of Victoria’s construction and demolition waste and almost quarter of Queensland’s. Our innovative approach to recycling glass means we’re reducing stockpiling and landfill of waste glass by 100,000 tonnes per year.
When developers and governments choose Green Roads materials, the community and the environment benefit in four significant ways:
- Reduction of landfill
- Reduction of carbon emissions by 65%;
- Reduction of truck movements and traffic by 30%; and
- Reduction of quarrying of precious natural resources by 110%.
