Asset recovery, or resource recovery, is the process of maximizing the value of unused or end of life assets through effective reuse or divestment. Recovery initiatives allow clients to divert various components, equipment and fixtures from landfills for recycling and reuse. Our asset recovery division has an impressive track record for maximizing value from facilities and equipment no longer required.
At the cost evaluation (tendering) period of each project Budget Demolition's highly knowlegable estimating team determines what assets are re-usable or recyclable and incorporate the value into the bid process. Each of the recoverable commodities are marketed for resale and/or reuse to ensure the client is maximizing the full recoverable value of the potential assets within the structure.
Recyclable Components of a Structure
- Ferrous Metals
- Non Ferrous Metals
- Structural Steel
- Wood Timbres & Beams
Budget Environmental's steel recycling & processing division, Budget Iron & Metals’ has an enviable solid market position, which in turn provides Budget Demolition with the resources and the unique ability to reduce the cost of demolition and to selectively purchase plants or facilities for decommissioning and recovery.
Budget Iron & Metals’ receives and purchases, then processes ferrous, non ferrous and precious metals.
Wood Timbres & Beams
Many buildings are built with using wood as the structural components. In most cases these structural components can either be dismantled for re-use or recycled for alternate applications. If the wood is to be re-used, it will be marketed and sold prior to the structure being removed. If the wood is not re-usable, then as the building is being demolished, the wood will be brought to Budget Environmental Disposal's Sorting Facility, Regional Waste Recovery, where it will be processed for future applications, such as flowerbed mulch.
Concrete & Asphalt Recycling
Most structures have some form of concrete within the structural components of the building, whether in the foundation, the concrete block or some other form of structural use. Both concrete and asphalt are able to be crushed and reused. Budget Environmental processes and prepares an impressive 20,000 tonnes of Gran A & B from recycled concrete annually. Once prepared, this product is able to be reused in many different applications from New Construction to Roads.
