ECO Launches Major New Construction, Demolition, and General Inert Waste Recycling Facility

Minister for Environment, the Honourable Stephen Dawson was on hand to officially launch the new ECO Resources Recycling Facility at our Hope Valley operations centre on Thursday, July 4th. Despite torrential rain and gale-force winds, there was an excellent turnout and we were able to celebrate the next phase of the ECO Resources (ECO) business enhancement plan.

ECO’s investment in this new state-of-the-art picking, sorting, and recovery facility underlines its commitment to both recycling and landfill diversion. The new facility will enable ECO to increase the total volumes of waste recycled and greatly improve the quality of the recycled product.

ECO currently services more than 200 of the state’s leading building, construction, demolition, and waste management companies as well as local councils, shires, and administrations, diverting more than 500,000m3 of waste from landfill each year. Through the company’s ECO Accreditation program, customers are guaranteed a minimum of 93% of their inert waste is recycled and reused.

ECO Director, Kristy Sumich said, “Launch of our new facility is a key part of our continuous improvement plan which is designed to deliver ongoing service improvements to customers and to make sure that ECO stays ahead of the field in both its customer service experience and recycling outcomes”.

The team at ECO would like to thank the Honourable Stephen Dawson, Minister for Environment, and Carol Adams, Mayor of Kwinana for supporting our launch and of course all of the ECO customers, friends, colleagues, and stakeholders who braved the weather to join us.

Special mention to our friends from Pindan Homes who we are proud to have on board as a foundation member of the ECO Accreditation program, the Housing Industry Association who recently accepted ECO as a Regional Greensmart Partner, Nicole King and Dianne Dowdell from Alcoa and Asher Ryall from Programmed Industrial Maintenance all of whom who continue to support and show interest in ECO’s development.
