Environmental and Sustainable practises

We are committed to

  • Continually reducing the carbon footprint of all our processes, operations and facilities, including the use of energy efficient machinery and the use of alternative fuels such as Adblue.
  • Conservation of water including rainwater capture, storage and use on our site to minimise dust
  • Use of environmentally safe dust suppressants on our crushing plants as a replacement for water, potentially saving thousands of litres of water each year
  • Collecting all used oil and ensuring it is professionally recycled by an independent and accredited third party.
  • Ongoing re-vegetation using native trees
  • All vehicles using the truck wash facility installed at our site. The truck wash is supplied with water captured onsite and recycled through a series of silt buster tanks. The truck wash ensures that drag out of dirt and mud onto public roads is minimised, benefiting other road users and the local community.
  • Enforcing the use of tarping systems to minimise dust.
  • Converting to energy efficient lighting throughout the quarry premises.
  • Compliance with all relevant legislation, standards and codes of practice.
