Waste less Recycle more
In 2015, as part of the NSW Government’s Waste Less, Recycle More initiative, Doyle Bros was awarded $1.05 million Major Resource Recovery Infrastructure Grant from The NSW Environmental Trust and Environmental Protection Authority (EPA).
The grant allowed us to upgrade The Lab, and increase our processing capacity of commercial and industrial waste and recyclables to 30,000 tonne per annum.
We currently supply the mill with around 8% of their total feedstock!
The largest volume of recyclable recovered is fibre – Mixed Paper & Cardboard. Doyle Bros also has a long running supply agreement with Orora Paper Mill at Botany (previously Amcor) for all mixed Paper & Cardboard recovered.
Maintaining our commitment to sustainability, we have chosen to partner with Orora to ensure the material is recycled to be reused in Australia rather than transferring it to off shore markets. Our relationship with Orora has continued for over 20 years, meaning that when the recent China ban on recyclable imports happened, we were unaffected.
Over the last 12 months, Doyle Bros has commissioned our fully automated reporting system. This allows the collection vehicles weights, along with the all incoming and outgoing material from ‘The Lab’ to be integrated into the same report. The monthly reports will show the total weight of all material collected, and the total recovery by type.
