Media release:

Interbloc was today recognised for its efforts to responsibly manage the environmental effects of its products, with Environment Minister Dr Nick Smith awarding product accreditation to the company’s Envirocon scheme under the Waste Minimisation Act.

“Envirocon is a concrete collection system which reuses wet waste ready-mix concrete to manufacture products like stackable concrete blocks for retaining walls. Currently under the scheme, 13,000 tonnes of waste concrete is diverted from landfill or energy-intensive reprocessing. The aim is to increase this to 23,400 tonnes by 2018,” Dr Smith says.
