Brett Aggregates is involved in recycling in accross the South and East of England. Inert waste products are imported to our plants, crushed and screened to produce sub-base materials, including aggregates screened to Type 1 gradings.
Recycled products are now responsible for nearly 20% of aggregates used in the UK and an upward trend looks set to continue.
'Slag based Type 1' is produced with the same specification as Rock Based Type 1, but this recycled product is sourced from the blast furnace process of steel production.
Our Hydraulically Bound Materials (HBMs) are made using recycled material and cement to produce a (CBGM) Cement Bound Granular Material - these can be used in place of a traditional sub base in road construction as well as in other building applications.
In instances where the materials cannot be utilised as a secondary aggregate they are used as landfill, a sustainable method for us to restore our quarried sites.
