Are you planning a complete garden transformation project in Woking? Or are you overseeing commercial surfacing or construction work in the area? No matter the type or size of the project you’re undertaking, you likely want to drive costs down as low as possible, and all while reducing your carbon footprint. For jobs in the domestic and commercial sector, recycled aggregates are a great way to achieve this. When you choose us as your aggregate suppliers (and topsoil suppliers), we can provide a full range of these materials.
These recycled options are also known as secondary aggregates. Broadly speaking, they include screened topsoils too. As such, in addition to your aggregate delivery, you can also rely on us for your topsoil delivery.
If you’re not overly familiar with recycled aggregates, we have provided a brief, but thorough, guide to them below.
What are recycled aggregates?
To better understand the materials in a recycled aggregate delivery, it’s best to start with the basics. The secondary materials we deliver include:
• Crushed Concrete
• Crushed Tarmac
• Crushed Hardcore
• Screened Topsoil
For concrete, we supply types 1, 2 and 3, while our hardcore comes sized at 75mm. The crushed tarmac our aggregate suppliers deliver is ideal for use on car parks and tracks.
As topsoil suppliers, we can deliver an 8mm or 10mm sandy soil to your Woking site.
Is a recycled aggregate or topsoil delivery cheaper?
Yes, when compared with the delivery of primary materials, recycled aggregates are cheaper to manufacture. This makes them a popular choice for projects with tight budgets.
The materials we provide as your aggregate suppliers are repurposed from original applications. As such, there’s no mining involved in the manufacturing process, and far lower haulage costs.
The larger your recycled aggregate delivery, the bigger the savings you make.
Are recycled aggregates better for the environment?
Absolutely! Every aggregate and/or topsoil delivery we make in the Woking area is more eco-friendly than one made up of primary materials.
As mentioned above, when you hire us as your aggregate and topsoil suppliers, you eliminate the need to extract raw materials from the ground – and all the carbon emissions associated with the process.
Without our intervention, the materials in your aggregate delivery would likely have ended up in a landfill. Not only is this extremely harmful to the environment, it’s also an unnecessarily expensive approach to construction.
Are recycled aggregates as strong as primary options?
Yes, opting for a recycled aggregate or topsoil delivery will not lower the quality of your project in any way. Ever-improving recycling technology allows our aggregate suppliers to provide premium materials.
What’s more, the process of recycling doesn’t have any negative impact on the structure of the material at hand. This means that, when applied at your Woking site, the secondary aggregates provide just as much strength and durability as they did in their primary form.
