Resource Recovery

BMI is a leading industry player in resource recovery and recycling within the construction and demolition waste sector. Resource Recovery activities are undertaken at all sites, however we operate two Resource Recovery plants that focus on the recovery of various materials, including concrete, bricks, masonry, asphalt, green waste, timber, soils, metals, e-waste, and plasterboard from a mixed waste stream. 

The waste is separated at our facilities for further reprocessing or collected by specialist recycling partners. More than 90% of the waste delivered to BMI's Resource Recovery sites is recycled and reused. BMI’s concrete crushing plants play a crucial role in producing a range of recycled road base products used in building, landscaping, and civil construction. 

BMI is dedicated to sustainable practices and continuously strives for improvements in waste recovery, recycling, and reuse.


BMI has managed and operated several landfills in South-East Queensland, complementing the resource recovery efforts and increasing the landfill diversion rates.
Located at the northern Gold Coast, Stapylton Resource Recovery commenced landfill operations in 2018. This site has a landfill capacity of 10,000,000 m3 of airspace and covers a footprint area of 23 hectares.

This Landfill is a highly engineered site that is a environmentally sound way to manage waste that currently can't be recycled.
