GreenCape has been working with companies to showcase examples of the successful reuse of builders' rubble and demolition waste in the construction industry. 

Concor Infrastructure was tasked with the 2000 square metre expansion of the City Deep container terminal. The work included resurfacing of the 144 000 square-metre facility, which generated 77 000 cubic metres of concrete ‘waste’. The brief to Concor Infrastructure was to achieve a 24% diversion from landfill by including the materials back into the revamp. 

Through innovative concrete production methods, Concor Infrastructure were able to save R10.8 million in virgin material costs and prevented R23 million worth of landfill gate fees.
