SCE Materials and Recycling has been at the forefront of the industrial recycling sector for over 10 years, with its recycled materials performing as well as, and in some cases, better than virgin materials.
The company’s Kemblawarra-based resource recovery facility recycles building and demolition wastes, including concrete and brick, roof tiles and asphalt, for re-use by the construction sector in local roads, pavements and civil works.
“Using recovered concrete, brick and asphalt materials for the construction of pavements, earthworks, and drainage has several advantages, including potential cost savings and conserving natural resources,” said Marcus Warner, divisional manager at SCE Materials and Recycling.

Warner says reusing construction and demolition waste reduces the cost of sourcing new materials and has the added benefit of reducing environmental impacts through decreasing the amount of waste that goes to landfill.
“Our customers reduce their project material costs by up to 10 per cent when using recycled aggregate for construction and drainage purposes from construction and demolition waste concrete, instead of reducing stocks of our natural resources,” Warner explains.
“They also get peace of mind knowing all our products are EPA approved, local council approved and even RMS approved.
“While our ISO accreditation ensures our products are of the highest quality and safe to use.”
Locally owned and operated, the company’s focus on product quality and materials testing is a key reason that leading councils, developers and road makers use SCE’s materials for major infrastructure projects.
“By constantly working on research and development, we’re able to make sure our customers are always getting the best possible fit-for-purpose products,” Warner said.
The innovative company achieved a major milestone recently having supplied over 260,000 tonnes of ER-MB20, used in the construction of state highways, site access roads and driveways.
Other recent wins included the supply of materials for bridge, road and intersection works at West Dapto, the Princes Highway upgrade between Berry and Bomaderry and Wollongong’s first synthetic football pitch at Ian McLennan Park, Kembla Grange.
Warner says there are many compelling reasons for construction businesses to increase the amount of waste they reuse or recycle.
“From reducing material and waste disposal costs, increasing their competitive advantage, reducing carbon emissions or meeting planning requirements, the benefits are endless.”
