Company Profile

Anton Demolitions specialise in the demolition and recycling of all domestic, industrial & commercial buildings and structures including burnt buildings and multi-storey buildings.

Services include friable and non-friable asbestos product removal, building strip-outs, renovations, site preparation, site clearing and levelling ,tree removal, earthmoving, excavations and cyclone preparedness, cleanups and recovery.

Anton Demolitions recycling yard offers North Queensland’s most extensive range of quality demolished building materials and pre-loved second hand knick-knacks and curiosities. The recycling yard offers a unique opportunity for DIY home handymen, builders, engineers, architects and discerning home owners of period buildings to source and match all of those hard to find/rare select species timbers and associated historical building materials which can no longer be purchased across the counter from mainstream timber mills and hardware suppliers.

The recycling yard also provides the ever-growing DIY market (on very tight budgets) an opportunity to readily source discounted building materials.

The extensive range of stock can cover everything from metal roof sheeting, structural steel, structural timbers, fencing, commercial signs and fit-outs, concrete blocks, pavers, plumbing accessories, pipes and fittings, glass, louvres, doors and windows to name a few.

Technologies and Capabilities

Friable and non-friable asbestos removal processes, including asbestos disturbed by cyclone damage.

• Experience in workplace health and safety processes for projects of all sizes.

• Effectively carrying out operations in extreme rainfall periods that produce high humidity, mould and water soaked buildings that often involves cyclone preparedness and recovery work.

• Experienced workplace health and safety processes and capabilities in the demolition of burnt buildings – (including the delicate extraction of all friable asbestos and non-friable asbestos ACM).

• Experience in carefully and systematically de-constructing heritage buildings, using skilled labour to maximise diversion from landfill and re-use of building materials. This work includes the in-house care, storage and maintenance of some building material types until it is re-sold.

Company Background

Anton Demolitions is a privately owned and family operated business. It was established 40 years ago in 1972 and is now operated by second generation family members. All services offered are personal and are closely linked and interconnected to the local communities of Far North Queensland through support of community welfare organisations and events.

Anton Demolitions has been a pioneering leader of demolition recycling practices in North Queensland for the past 40 years. We remain at the forefront of industry efforts to convince and advocate to all levels of community and government, the need to actively participate in the recycling of all materials derived from the demolition of our buildings and structures. By gradually changing community and government attitudes and values on issues of active demolition recycling practices in our region, we are ensuring that our history, heritage and our environment is better preserved and protected into the future.

Green Credentials

Anton Demolitions make every effort to maximise the potential for the 100 % recovery and recycling of all demolished building materials from every single project. Other service providers generally only recycle those items that have not been destroyed by heavy machinery and dispose of high volumes into landfill.

We understand that extra care and time is required to achieve good recycling outcomes & this may marginally increase the short term costs. The overall positive benefits to the resourceful end consumer, the community and the environment in general, far outweigh any short term cost imposts.
