The amount of construction waste produced in Israel is estimated as 7.5 million tons a year, but only 20% of it are transported to regulated dumping and recycling sites. The rest 80% of the waste are thrown in open areas, fields, forests and on roadsides and constitute a major aesthetic and environmental hazard.
Throughout the years the Knesset has enacted a number of laws which regulate construction waste management alongside monitoring and enforcement activities.
Negev Ecology deals with all stages of construction waste management: demolition of constructions, collection, removal, separation, classification, shredding and recycling.
The company owns engineering mechanical equipment and mobile and immobile shredders treating all components of the waste: concrete, iron, wood, glass and plastic, at the company’s site and at clients’ premises around Israel.
