Investing in the Environmental Economy

Adelaide Resource Recovery (ARR) is actively investing in the environmental economy for South Australia.

ARR has spent millions of dollars and created dozens of jobs as part of its commitment to recycling Construction & Demolition waste into re-usable building materials. Not long ago, all this demolition waste went straight into rubbish dumps. Today, thanks to companies like ARR, this “waste” provides the raw materials for an economically efficient and environmentally friendly recycling sector.
