Making a Sustainable future possible.

How we create a sustainable future

As Australia’s leading provider of waste management, we’re proud to be doing some extraordinary things.

While waste may seem like an ordinary part of everyday life, it has extraordinary potential. We look at all waste as a resource and we use our facilities and processes to transform it into valuable commodities for every sector, industry and community. By recovering these extraordinary raw resources and “closing the loop”, we’re proud to be making a sustainable future possible.

Areas of specialty

From ordinary household rubbish sitting in landfill, we’re able to capture 85% of the gas used to fire the brick kilns at Austral’s Horsley Park plant – an extraordinary 130 million bricks are produced, enough to build some 145,000 homes.
