Stockland Paves the Way for Sustainability with Recycled Road

Tonnes of plastic bags, glass bottles, toner from used print cartridges, reclaimed asphalt and rubber from old tyres have been recycled to create a new 3.9km stretch of road that is currently under construction on the Redcliffe peninsula.

The new Reconophalt surfaced roadway, which is made up of materials that might have otherwise ended up in landfill or stockpiled, is part of Stockland’s Newport community.

Stockland Senior Development Manager Blair Britton says the use of Reconophalt at Newport reinforces Stockland’s commitment to using sustainable materials at its masterplanned communities.

“We’re proud to pave the way with this initiative – Newport will be the first of our Queensland communities to use recycled asphalt,” Blair says.
