Recycled Aggregates are all produced in compliance with WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) Quality Protocol for the production of aggregates from Inert Waste
Our Recycled Aggregates meet international standards, complying with the strict quality criteria laid down for recycled aggregates. All aggregates produced by AAL are done so in compliance with the WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) Quality Protocol for the Production of Aggregates from Inert Waste.
The Protocol was developed in the UK by the Environment Agency and WRAP and sets out ‘end of waste criteria’ for the production of aggregates from Inert Waste. This means that the materials used to produce the aggregates have been received and inspected in accordance with strict waste acceptance criteria and that the aggregates produced are no longer considered to be a ‘waste’ product.
By using consistently applied production processes, checking and testing for quality and conformity, the aggregates meet the international standard BS EN 12342 in relation to civil engineering works and road construction.
We are one of only a few companies recognized as a Level 3 Eco-Active Businesses Leader in the Island for our environmental performance.
The award was given to AAL subsequent to having attained an international standard ‘ISO14001’ which is part of the ISO 14000 series of ‘International Organisation Standards’ for developing our own environmental management system.
It is testament to our own level of commitment to environmental management as a company and shows that we are committed to a programme of actions to minimize our impact on the environment.
We look at ways to constantly improve our environmentally aware practices, to become increasingly efficient and to lower our environmental footprint.
Reduction in consumption – including the reduction of energy use together with all-round improved efficiencies also reduces costs and so also makes good business sense.
