Recycled Aggregates

Construction materials, and in this specific case; construction aggregates, which are partly or wholly recycled, significantly reduce the need for newly quarried virgin aggregates in building and civil engineering schemes. The use of recycled aggregates also reduces the environmental impacts from extracting and processing quarried materials. Using recycled aggregate is a far more sustainable and environmentally friendly practice, where the specification allows.

We have a large volume of recycled aggregate (6F2) always available in stock at our yard in Altham, and other grades of aggregates can be produced by arrangement.

6F2 is a general ‘filling aggregate’, which is the same as ‘Quarry Waste’, or ‘General Hardcore’.

A selection of items available:


6F2 Recycled Aggregates

Our 6F2 recycled aggregate is made up of crushed concrete, brick and mortar and is produced as a by-product of our demolition projects and our recycle tip. The name 6F2 is a product that varies in size depending on your supplier, we find that a 75mm crusher run produces a great general purpose recycled aggregate. Our 6F2 aggregate is mainly used as a sub-base for a variety of buildings and roads but it also has numerous other uses like general backfill and even piling mats. Our 6F2’s coarse nature makes for a fantastic all in one product and when compacted it will form a very hard-wearing surface. As an initial layer of hardcore, 6F2 is great.
