Disposal and recycling of construction waste

The treatment of suitable construction waste to obtain secondary and landfill construction material and products is another important part of our company's service portfolio. Thanks to our treatment, utilisation and composting plants at various sites in Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt, we provide full regional coverage in terms of reliable disposal security.

Our company sites in Halle Lochau and in the south of Leipzig boast train terminals, so we are able to act as a partner for disposal solutions beyond the borders of our region and can quickly and effectively accept large quantities of mineral construction waste materials.

Depending on the quality of the construction waste delivered to us, we recycle these materials in our treatment plants to obtain secondary and landfill construction materials. Furthermore, we are able to obtain recycled products from gypsum waste. This product is then re-introduced into the material cycle.

Non-recyclable construction waste is disposed of professionally in adherence to applicable laws and environmental standards in suitable and certified landfills. In addition to recycling and disposal, we also compost municipal sewage sludge, and garden and green cuttings to obtain highly valuable compost.

Track Ballast Recycling

As a contractual partner of Deutsche Bahn, we offer the disposal of permanent way materials and the recycling of used track ballast from the railway network of Deutsche Bahn at our site in Lochau, which is served by our existing rail connection. We use these materials to produce high-quality secondary construction materials. This recycled track ballast is manufactured in accordance with the requirements of DB Standard 918 061, “Technical Terms of Delivery – Track Ballast”.

Furthermore, granular mixtures used by for support and protective layers, as well as aggregates for road maintenance and construction, can also be manufactured with recycling processes, and thus reintroduced into the material cycle.

Production of recycled construction materials, soils and substrates

Screening of separately piled-up top soil from construction projects

 

The secondary construction materials obtained from the treatment of construction waste can be used for various purposes:

  • Road construction
  • Landfill and open-cast mine remediation

Our soils and substrates, obtained from the composting of organic waste, are used for recultivation measures.

The construction waste processed and the materials produced are subject to a strict quality assurance plan and continuous control so as to guarantee first-class, reliable properties for our recycled products.

The use of recycled construction materials and compost means that natural resources, surfaces and habitats are preserved on a large scale. Therefore, to use recycled construction materials is to contribute actively to the protection of the environment.
