Company opens new recycling hub at Appleford depot in Oxfordshire to support circular economy

HEIDELBERG Materials have opened a new recycling hub at their Appleford depot in Oxfordshire. It is the first of several planned at the company’s sites this year as part of its strategy to conserve natural materials and promote the circular economy.

The Appleford hub will recycle construction waste, diverting it away from landfill and processing and reusing it to deliver sustainable products to its customers. It means the site is now a one-stop shop for customers, supplying primary aggregate, ready-mixed concrete, and asphalt, in addition to recycled material.


James Whitelaw, recycling managing director at Heidelberg Materials UK, said: ‘Recycling, reusing, and reducing the use of primary raw materials is crucial to reaching net zero. Our network of recycling hubs will allow us to provide the most sustainable products to our customers through circularity and innovation to enable building more with less.’ 

The recycling hubs form part of Heidelberg Material’s recycling business line, which includes rebranded Manchester-based A1 Services, acquired by the company in 2022.
