There are an increasing amount of recycling options becoming available as the construction industry tackles the major issue of how to recycle the large quantity of combustible cladding being removed from buildings and avoid this ending up in landfill.
With 3,400+ buildings across Australia requiring recladding from residential apartment blocks and office buildings to government-owned facilities such as hospitals – how to choose the right program for your project is important.
After launching our own service last week – the Aodeli Recycling Program (ARP) – here are our 4 tips for choosing the right program for your specific needs:
1 Transport – ensure that the solution that you choose offers transport from either the job site or your warehouse for delivery to the recycling facility. The ARP provides tailored options for transport to suit the specific needs of each project such as containers, bins or stacked pallets.
2 Recycling – ensure that the solution you are considering offers full recycling of the product. Remember, there is more to consider than just the ACP panels – there are additional waste materials also being removed such as rivets, screws, paint and glue. The ARP takes all these items into consideration as part of the recycling program.
3 Reuse – ensure that the program you choose is recycling the products for reuse. Knowing that the products will be recycled for reuse provides peace of mind for everyone concerned in the recladding project. The ARP program is dedicated to the eventual reuse of recycled materials in to other construction products such as compliant aluminium packers, bollards and other useful products within the construction industry
4 Cost – ensure that the cost of recycling is factored into your project bid. As part of the ARP, we work with customers to ensure that they are aware of and include the full costs associated with recycling the combustible panels and other waste materials and are not left out of pocket by unforeseen expenses.
The ARP program has undergone months of development and design prior to being launched to guarantee that it meets the needs of the market and our customers. As experts in the cladding industry and manufacturers of compliant cladding, we are able to foresee all potential facets of a particular recladding project and recommend the best course of action for recycling.
