PROUD TO BE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

Southern Quarries Pty Ltd and Direct Mix Concrete are committed to fostering a sustainable future. From energy efficient lighting to water recycling and land recovery, our processes minimise our impact on the environment. Through positive business partnerships, we aim to support construction projects that benefit our community environmentally, socially and economically.

Driving Sustainability

With an eye on the future, we have initiated the following processes, operations, and facilities to minimise our impact on the environment:

Water

  • Rainwater is captured, stored and used at all facilities
  • Waste water is recycled through settlement ponds and used at all concrete plants, including for vehicle wheel wash
  • We use dry produced, manufactured sand in our concrete and supply dry screened natural sand from our Peninsula Quarries sand mine at Price. These important measures eliminate the need for washing sand with water, and avoid associated environmental impacts such as silt dams.
  • We use environmentally safe Polo Citrus products, made from natural orange oil, for dust suppression at our crushing plant at Sellicks Hill, saving thousands of litres of water per year.

Oil, Fuel and Energy

  • Our energy efficient machinery uses alternative fuels such as Adblue
  • Used oil is collected for professional recycling by a third party
  • We use energy efficient lighting in our offices.

Land Recovery

  • We have purchased and revegetated more than 300 acres of buffer land surrounding the Sellicks Hill Quarry
  • Our Sellicks Hill and Price Quarries have been revegetated with native plants. 

Community and Compliance

  • We protect our local environment and community by ensuring all vehicles used at our quarries enter a wheel wash facility, which uses recycled water to minimise ‘drag out’ of dirt and mud onto public roads.
  • We comply with all relevant legislation, standards and codes of practice.
