As part of BlueSky Modular Buildings commitment to sustainability, we recently conducted a full waste audit under the NSW Government Bin Trim program. The program helps NSW businesses such as ours to maximise recycling and minimise waste to landfill.

We are proud to have existing recycling programs in place for paper, cardboard, aluminium cans and recyclable metals. But we wanted to do more. A number of the components of our buildings (such as toilets, urinals and sinks) are packed using polystyrene. As you can imagine, there’s a lot of polystyrene packaging around these products, and when you build a lot of buildings, it all adds up. Other materials such as flooring may also be wrapped in soft plastics to protect them during transit.

Through the waste audit, we determined that new solutions were required for our EPS (polystyrene) and soft plastic wastes. We connected with local recycling machinery specialists, Mil-Tek, who have now installed both a EPS recycling machine and a compact soft plastic bailer on site at BlueSky Modular Buildings.

BlueSky Modular Buildings is committed to continuously improving the quality of our products and services. We have a strong commitment to health, safety and environment and are in the process of developing an integrated management system that will combine our already strong WHS, Environment and Quality processes and procedures into one system. This will enable BlueSky to continue to ensure our customers that our products and services are delivered as promised and to the Australian Building standards.

There are a number of great reasons why we need to redirect this waste. Around 30% of landfills are reportedly filled by polystyrene, which takes up to 500 years to decompose as it requires light to break down. Whilst the process is sped up by light, this causes the release of styrene which is harmful for the environment, and the ozone layer as it breaks down.

Soft plastics are equally harmful. They are easily blown from landfill into waterways, where they can injure wildlife by causing suffocation or intestinal blockages. Certain soft plastics that contain PCV are non-biodegradable, meaning this risk lasts an eternity. According to statistics, there are 5.25 trillion macro and micro pieces of plastic in our oceans worldwide, weighing up to 269,000 tonnes. More than 8 million pieces of plastic make their way into oceans each and every day. We wanted to be part of the solution, not the problem.

The recycled EPS will now be transformed into outdoor furniture, coat hangers, seedling containers, and even car dashboards. The soft plastics will be turned into outdoor furniture, bollards, decking and fencing. Soft plastics have also been used to pave roads in Victoria.

We look forward to giving these products a useful second life as recycled products – and seeing less going to landfill. We believe our children will thank us.
