Australians generate more Construction and Demolition waste (C&D Waste) than any other waste stream including council collections (Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment & Blue Environment, 2020), Redooo aims to reduce the amount of waste individuals contribute to landfill by providing solutions for a number of waste streams including concrete recycling, C&D waste sorting, Metal Recycling and Timber recycling.

All construction and demolition waste collected, typically via a hook lift bin due to the weight, will be transported to a waste recovery centre where any recoverable materials will be transported on for recycling by approved and compliant service providers. Recycled Construction materials are often re-used in development of gravel, retaining walls, garden beds, and in foundations.

Typically Clean Concrete Recycling is done by using heavy machinery to crush or pulverize the concrete, where foreign materials can be filtered and removed, this ensures contributions to recycling require little intervention from recyclers and circular economy is achieved and the mining of raw materials is ideally kept to a minimum.

Redooo also offers untreated timber recycling, these bins are often bulkier and can handle larger weights and quantities. This service has multiple benefits for businesses particularly on a recurring basis; the separation of timber from General waste significantly reduces the weight of general waste services and increases recycling rates. Recycled untreated timber is used in the manufacturing of furniture, construction or is mulched to make new timber products.

For timber to be recycled it must be untreated. Painted timber, varnished timber, stained timber or treated timber can contain harmful chemicals and cannot be recycled.
