SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS: THE ADVANTAGES OF RECYCLED AGGREGATES

In the construction industry, the push towards sustainability is transforming practices. Mayo Stone Supplies Ltd leads the charge by emphasising the use of recycled aggregates, a game-changer in reducing environmental impact and promoting eco-friendly construction across Greater Manchester.

RECYCLED AGGREGATES DEFINED

Recycled aggregates comprise materials derived from the processing of construction, demolition and utility waste. Mayo Stone prioritises the use of these sustainable resources, contributing to a circular economy that minimises the depletion of our planet’s natural resources.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT: MITIGATING EXCAVATION WASTE

Construction projects generate a significant amount of excavation waste, often destined for landfills. Mayo Stone’s firm commitment to sustainability involves redirecting this waste from disposal sites. The use of recycled aggregates, including excavation waste, not only reduces landfill pressure but also conserves valuable space.

CRUSHED CONCRETE/HARDCORE: A VERSATILE ECO-FRIENDLY SOLUTION

One of the primary components of recycled aggregates is crushed concrete. Mayo Stone uses concrete, rubble, hardcore mainly from demolition sites, transforming it into a versatile material for construction. This practice not only reduces the need for extracting new raw materials from quarries but also minimises the energy required for processing, not just in Manchester or the UK but worldwide.

QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE: RECYCLED AGGREGATES SHINE

Contrary to misconceptions, recycled aggregates boast quality and performance comparable to traditional quarried aggregate counterparts. Mayo Stone ensures that the aggregates meet industry standards, providing clients with eco-friendly options without compromising on strength or durability. Our Recycled MOT Type 1 sub base for example meets the standards set of by The Ministry of Transport (Highway Works Clause 803)

COST-EFFECTIVE SUSTAINABILITY

Choosing recycled aggregates aligns with both environmental stewardship and economic prudence. Mayo Stone’s commitment to sustainable practices extends beyond environmental benefits to cost-effectiveness. The use of recycled materials often translates to reduced costs, making it a win-win for both the planet and the project budget.

 REDUCING CARBON FOOTPRINT

The production of traditional aggregates involves significant energy consumption and carbon emissions. By opting for recycled aggregates, Mayo Stone actively contributes to a lower carbon footprint. This shift towards eco-friendly alternatives is pivotal in combating climate change and fostering a greener construction industry.
