Recycling and what it means to us.

Updated: Jan 30, 2023

We are passionate about Green Living, sustainable architecture and thoughtful design in our homes, and understand the benefits to be gained from a more sustainable approach to everyday living by protecting and maintaining our natural environment.

The reduction (or prevention where possible) of waste, as well as recycling of materials on construction sites is very important to us. After all, the best environmental and cost-effective solution for reducing waste in our industry is to reduce the amount of waste created.

Pre-Construction Actions

The design stage in an important part of our waste management program. We consider what excess materials are likely to be generated and focus on how the generation of those excess materials can either be avoided of the material can be diverted from landfill

Onsite Waste Management

We are proud to have been working along side local family owned business Chilli Bins for many years, who only use Green Star approved Resource Recovery Centres to assure that we are all doing our part in waste diversion from landfills by 85% of material collected.

Our Construction Supervisors are doing their part with site waste management by following PJ Burns Builder’s waste management plan, coordinating the timing, placing and quality of delivery, avoiding ordering of excess materials, returning packaging where possible, and ensuring the skip bins are placed in locations that are easy for site staff to use the waste facilities.

Undertaking site waste audits to monitor how waste types and quantities to continually look to implement the best practices, is a very important part of our recycling process.
