Aggregates and industrial sand producers are proactive members of their communities who operate sustainable businesses, both during production and at the end of a quarry’s life cycle. Operators ensure closed sites are responsibly reclaimed and add community benefit once extraction is completed. Reclaimed quarries can take many different forms, depending on where they are located, including farmland, parks, wildlife habitat areas, water reservoirs, community developments, recreation spots, nature preserves, alternative energy generation and more.
