Recycling Process

The recycling of demolition and building waste extends the life of existing quarry reserves, reduces the waste and environmental impact of mineral extraction, minimizes the need for more landfill and ultimately land reclamation, and puts recycled resources back into the Island, so helping support our sustainability for the future.

One of the principle objectives of Jersey’s waste strategy is to improve the aggregate recycling facilities.

This has not only extended the life of the island’s landfill sites but diverse building materials including bricks, blocks, granite and cement are now recycled and made into chippings, granite dust, and various sizes of hardcore.

The benefit to the local building industry is immense with our Recycled Aggregates now being available for suitable applications for both private and commercial clients.

As a result of the vital role that AAL Recycling has played and continues to play in Jersey’s recycling to lifespan of the La Collette infill can be extended for years to come.
