PARO specializes in waste processing and the associated logistics. The company recycles construction and demolition waste materials into primary and secondary construction products. Examples of primary construction products are sand and soil. Secondary construction products consist of recycled debris that is reused in road construction, concrete and asphalt industries. For this, the debris is sorted, broken, sieved and/or washed. By doing so, the company aims to contribute to the circular economy.
In the Port of Amsterdam, PARO has its own loading and unloading quay for transshipment of sand, soil, gravel, split and granulates. The company was founded in 2004 for waste collection. It is part of the GMP Group, which also includes a design agency and a real estate company.
