Working in tandem to deliver high-quality recycled aggregates
Three aggregates suppliers join forces to raise standards in the use of recycled materials across Yorkshire
THREE Yorkshire-based recycling operators are working together with the aim of driving up standards in the use of recycled construction materials throughout the region.
Mone Brothers of Leeds, currently celebrating their 50th year in business, are assisting E J Lidster of Barnsley and Mike Wakefield Tippers Ltd, based in Hull, in their bid to achieve YHAUC (Yorkshire Highways and Utilities Committee) accreditation for Type 1 recycled aggregate used in highways and utilities contracts.
Steve Horsley, operations director for Mone Brothers, said: ‘We are working closely with E J Lidster and Mike Wakefield Tippers to ensure that their recycled construction materials conform to the most stringent of standards for civil engineering contracts across Yorkshire. We have already helped the two companies hit the benchmark in SMR (structural material for reinstatement).
‘Between us we have many years of knowledge of the recycling, quarrying and aggregates sectors so we are well placed to provide the best possible materials. We pride ourselves in the manufacture of recycled Type 1 and SMR and we feel it is vital that we help to raise the bar for other companies operating in the sector as well as assisting with their sales strategies.’
In recent years, Mone Brothers have diversified into quarrying, recycling and plant/wagon hire. Supplying a wide range of construction products, the business has contributed towards many significant UK construction and civil engineering projects and was heavily involved in recycling rubble from the old Yorkshire Post building for use as Type 1 on roads across the region.
E J Lidster have more than 30 years’ experience in plant hire, haulage, demolition and site clearance and run a recycling centre in South Yorkshire. Mike Wakefield Tippers – which operate out of Hull Docks and have a recycling centre – supply a range of natural and recycled aggregates across East Yorkshire.
