Concrush Expansion Works

Concrush expansion project is continuing with bulk earthworks and its RAP works coming to a completion by December 2021. Its road entry design is being finalised in October 2021 with works to commence shortly after. For any questions concerning these works please contact Kevin Thompson on 4958 3777.

Concrush – Closing the Loop

Concrush has operated in the recycling industry for over 20 years while located at Teralba NSW. We are a “zero waste” industry. We repurpose 99.02% of the C & D waste we receive into valuable resource products including aggregates, sands and road base materials.

Water Main Installed

Our new watermain installed to our Teralba site will allow us to reduce our dependancy on tracking water from Teralba to our yard. This will make our operation more efficient. Works have begun and the expected completion date is in October 2021.

CRC Waste 5.0

Concrush participated in a workshop in July 2021 on industry lead initiatives aiming to reduce our national waste volume. We are now looking at innovative and value adding solutions to reduce waste. The next step is helping the bid committee in submitting a CRC grant application
