It’s All About Resources

Reducing Landfill

Recycling up to 80% of waste disposed at our state of the art facility in Acacia Ridge, BMI Resource Recovery is committed to providing sustainable practices, revolutionary solutions and consistent improvement in recycling, resource re-use and resource recovery.

BMI Resource Recovery currently operates a landfill and recycling facility in Acacia Ridge, two resource recovery transfer stations at Nudgee and Stapylton, and additional facilities in Redbank Plains and Mt Gravatt East.

Because many of our customers produce waste which may be re-used or recycled, BMI recognises the importance of providing sustainability through alternative processes, and has a particular focus on recycling as much waste as possible and reducing landfill through improved practices. To this end, waste disposed at our locations is sorted for reuse where possible and mixed waste is processed through a state of the art sorting facility based at Watson Road Resource Recovery. Up to 80% of the waste disposed at that site is able to be recycled or reused.
