A GORILLA IN THEIR MIDST

1/04/2021

After reviewing waste contractors, the Fletcher Living team chose Green Gorilla for their Auckland-based residential construction sites. Green Gorilla have a 70% diversion rate - saving Auckland some 75,000 tonnes annually from going to landfill.  We also share their passion for separating waste and recycling.

Did you know that plasterboard offcuts are 100% recyclable? The gypsum gets ground up and is used for fertiliser, compost or as a cement additive. So now Green Gorilla collect all Fletcher Living plasterboard from every house lot in special bags and take them away to be recycled. Fletcher Living untreated wood offcuts are also chipped up and find their way landscapers for gardens or to farmers for animal bedding.

BUILDING SUSTAINABLE PARTNERSHIPS

Over 70% Auckland Building Waste Diverted. Construction waste removal services in Auckland are not created all the same. Green Gorilla has the only solid waste management processing facility dedicated to separate and recycle construction waste. 

What Does Processed Through a Facility Mean? Instead of being sent directly to Auckland landfill, your waste is bought back to our Onehunga site and placed into a large operation that sorts the waste. The recycling plant processing systems include a large scale mechanical and manual sort line to recover timber, metals, card, plasterboard and other valuable commodities. It's an impressive sight!

Green Gorilla are the building waste removal experts in Auckland, East Auckland, West Auckland, North Auckland and South Auckland. We collect and dispose of building waste near you.
