Problem

Melbourne’s leading building recyclers and resource recovery experts

Problems with landfills are that they generate toxins that leech into our soil and ground water and become environmental hazards for many years.

Landfills:

  • Generate leachate, which is toxic and pollutes land and water waste
  • Produce high amounts of greenhouse gas, which is 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide

Our Process

The process, otherwise known as industrial ecology, involves taking a product at the end of its lifecycle and identifying ways to transform it into a material that will be utilised at the beginning of a new lifecycle.

Waste Generation

At Repurpose It we continually strive to find solutions to convert this waste to resources to preserve our natural resources for future generations.

Collection & Sorting

The waste we generate comes in a variety of forms with some being far more difficult to handle than others. With many conventional recycling methods, a high portion of these materials still end up in landfill.

There are four main processing methods that we utilise:
