Our strength is combining our sound technical knowledge and ability to work through complex problems with a passion for working with people to develop practical, effective and fair outcomes for the environment and the communities that depend upon it.
We aim to deliver strategic environmental management services to a wide range of clients including all levels of government, government agencies, regional NRM bodies such as catchment management authorities, water corporations, industry organisations and community groups.
Our work in resource recovery and organics leverages RMCG’s skill set to deliver strategies and recycling programs that contribute to circular economies.
RMCG are industry experts in organics and resource recovery, from waste generation assessments, diversion opportunities and processing, through to reuse opportunities, market analysis and regulatory approvals. We consider organic and recoverable materials as resources and develop processes and reuse schemes that integrate circular management principles and design out waste. We consider this in the broader context of land management, the environment, local opportunities and the viability to businesses.
Our resource recovery approach is built on our ties to regional communities and agriculture, considering both industrial processing and use of compost. We combine soil health and compost expertise, with experience in organic processing and collection systems, economic analysis and regulatory knowledge.
