Sustainable Aggregates South Australia (SASA) is a Resource Recovery and Recycling (RR&R) industry initiative co-funded by the State Government Department Zero Waste SA to inform, develop and promote the use of recycled aggregates sourced from inert hard wastes such as concrete brick, asphalt and rubble.

As a national leader in recycling inert hard wastes, South Australia recovers 860,000 tonnes of concrete. In addition 1.3 million tonnes of brick, rubble and soil is recovered, as well as 145,000 tonnes of Asphalt (Zero Waste: SA Recycling Activity Report 2010-11).

SASA development policies include:
  • Providing a cooperative and consultative link between the RR&R industry and its stakeholders.
  • Recognizing high benchmark standards of manufacture and product certification branding within the industry.
  • Promoting the factual technical capabilities of recycled products and environmental benefits.
  • Establishing an applied research and development program through industry - stakeholder consultation focusing on market development and new product initiatives.
  • Providing an information reference and retrieval portal (ie this website) to disseminate technical developments in the recycling field nationally and internationally.
  • Providing education and information technology transfer forums.

SASA represents RR&R organisations that conform to the strict standards and practices required of membership.
