As a scrap and waste logistics business, we are often asked by our savvy followers about Recycled Concrete Aggregate (RCA), and whether we supply it. In short: yes, we do!
A2B Skip Hire is the Wirral’s best bet for crushed hardcore and recycled aggregates.
We are specialists in the re-use and recycling of materials that create, high-quality Primary aggregates. We use the same limestone and building sand, as well as compounds like asphalt, mortar, and gravel to create our product.
With one of the largest fleets, we’re ready to deliver ethical, sustainable particulate aggregate compounds to contractors, companies, domestic users and utility providers. Our materials are screened and checked before being separated and crushed into aggregate – perfect for:
● Binding Course
● Concrete Mix
● Tarmac Mix
● Pipe Bedding,
● Turf or Soil Substrate
● Puddling clay
● Heat insulation
● And many more!
The Recycling Process
Anyone who understands recycling knows that everything has a use. A new piece of furniture is a couple of planks of wood and a good imagination away from being a reality. But what about the rest of the stuff that we can’t upcycle? What about the broken bricks, the old pipework, the smashed polycarbonate lighting? You say “inert waste”, we say “raw materials”! We’re pleased to announce that we dedicate a large part of our operation to reusing everything. We keep those construction materials off the landfill and put them right back to work as course, fine and medium grain aggregate.
When people think of aggregate, they often picture huge quarries churning out raw materials like limestone for making hardcore, or making ballast with gritsand. What they don’t often picture is the reality of so many aggregate suppliers across the UK. The UK is a leader in the global recycled aggregate market, with over 70 million tonnes produced every year. A2B Skip Hire are thrilled to be a contributor to our country’s aggregate supply chain. We are a supplier with a high-quality product and a dedication to sustainability.
We have been recycling materials in our amazing Recycling Centre for years. We handle the reducing and reusing of inert waste from building sites and construction works, as well as all sorts of domestic items. Alongside the more traditional ingredients of aggregate, we see to the disposal of metals, paper, wood, PVC, and plastics, for companies and individuals across the Wirral and Cheshire. After all, with us being one of the most popular Skip Hire companies in the area, you can only imagine the variety of components that we get through our gates!
Be environmentally friendly
We keep full control over what comes in and what goes out of our facilities. A2B only deal with “inert” waste, which is physical, construction-based waste, and is not biological. We do not accept food, liquid, clinical, chemical or any hazardous waste. All of our material is checked and transported by us, and we are fully licensed as Environment Agency approved Waste Carriers.
We take our sustainability policy very seriously, and A2B is always happy to advise you with yours – whatever the project. Whether you are a sole trader looking to make a difference, or a multi-national construction company seeking to reduce your carbon footprint; A2B Skip Hire has you covered. Our aggregates will take you one step further to ethically sourced bliss.
Recycled aggregates are becoming much more common and are vital in keeping construction budgets affordable. We can make your Environmental Management Plans even stronger, with an ethical, fantastic product. Nature’s supply of minerals and resources is finite, and the quarrying of these resources is being reduced. We can help you do your bit for future generations with our industrial quality RCAs, which are available in bulk and in bags by the tonne.
The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) states in paragraph 143 that construction plans should “take account of secondary and recycled minerals before considering extraction for primary minerals”, so there really isn’t a reason not to consider A2B for your supply.
