END-OF-LIFE RECYCLING

EARP BROS STEWARDSHIP POLICY

END-OF-LIFE RECYCLING

Why is recycling and reducing the impact of landfill waste important?

 

Everything we buy is transformed from raw materials and transported for sale. Sand becomes glass, bauxite becomes aluminum and raw earth becomes tiles. Often it involves shipping materials halfway around the world. The energy used to make and transport a product is called embodied energy. It makes sense to make the most of all of the consumed embodied energy and resources by reusing or recycling every product we can to prevent landfill.

 

Australia disposes of 32 million tonnes of solid waste into landfill every year. 40% of this is attributable to the construction and demolition sector (ABS, 2002-03)

What are we doing about it?

 

The Earp Bros Product Stewardship Program represents a significant green initiative that considers the complete life-cycle of our products from raw material extraction to end-of-life recycling. The program is used to ensure the minimisation of environmental impacts of products by employing sustainable production, operations, logistics and disposal practices .
