Aggreg8 finds its foundation in the crushing and screening of building rubble, concrete and excavated materials, thus recycling the rejected material into a highly re-usable form, for use in the process of (a) sub-base material for roads and buildings, (b) various structural aggregates and (c) an excellent by-product crusher sand for the manufacture of brick and other concrete products. Not only does this not damage the environment from this otherwise waste resource, it takes the initiative further in the minimisation for a dump and landfill site.
We currently process a healthy level of building rubble and concrete from surrounding areas where demolitions and excavations abound, this, in its very nature to our close proximity to market as well as the further opportunity due to the shutdown of a nearby land-fill site. The operation, through its current and proposed production, supply back into the market with above mentioned products. The end product produced will be “Green” friendly and in accordance with the Green Building Council’s guidelines for building requirements. It will meet the necessary quality assurances and be graded on a continuous basis.
Machinery used in this process are screens and crushers and the mobile machinery required to feed discarded waste and take away quality finished products, namely front end loaders and excavators. Tipper trucks access the site in order to deposit the discarded materials destined for the landfills and the same trucks take the finished goods away destined for the construction and infrastructure market.
Possible environmental impacts on this process are both noise and dust pollution. We have minimised both through carefully understanding the process of recycling. Dust is very prominent in our area from the mine dumps in the area and the general reductions thereof, In order not to add to this pollution we have inserted various water methods in dampening the amount of dust that is freed into the air, this, through water carts over the land and water sprayers on the machinery both on the inflow and outflow. We have inserted the necessary noise reduction techniques on all of our machinery so as not to disturb the area. Our drive is to reduce the harm on the environment in every possible way.
