We understand that the earth’s resources are finite so we optimise resource recovery and recycling in every project.
Environmental sustainability is a major focus of project planning and implementation at Mann Group. We maximise waste diversion from landfill and aim for 100% recycling of all non-hazardous materials generated by our projects. We have waste management solutions and reporting systems to track waste generated and recycling rates and we can provide our clients with overall and material specific waste reports.
With it being known that the world’s built environment is the single largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, many developers are adopting the Green Building Council of Australia’s (GBCA) sustainability rating system for buildings known as the Green Star Rating system. Our commitment to recycling demolition waste assists clients with reaching their Green Star Rating requirements on their projects.
Mann Group Vic. are proud to boast an average recycling percentage of 98%, significantly higher than the industry standard of 90%. Steel, structural steel, copper, aluminium, timber, glass, carpet and domestic pipework are some of the many materials we recycle, though the largest contributor of demolition waste is concrete and masonry/brick.
We work closely with Alex Fraser, Australia’s leading producer of sustainable materials for the civil construction industry. Alex Fraser collect our waste concrete, brick, asphalt and clean rock and converts it into quality tested and approved civil construction materials such as asphalt, road base and aggregate materials. These materials are recycled back into other civil projects, or back into the site from which they were extracted.
