BREWSTER Brothers is reporting increasing demand for recycled aggregate as awareness of product quality grows.
The Livingston-based firm is launching a campaign to encourage all sectors within the construction industry to consider recycling waste soil and rubble before sending it to recovery or waste management license-exempt sites to help meet demand.
Over the financial year to March 2021, Brewster Brothers sales of recycled aggregate (RA) grew by 91%, with record sales of 300,000 tonnes of recycled sand, gravel, stone and soil looping back into the construction industry from the company’s Livingston wash plant.
The plant is producing an average of 27,000 tonnes of RA per month, with the company projecting an additional 20% demand per month from builders around Edinburgh and West Lothian where it operates.
The campaign, ‘Don’t waste your waste’, aims to address what Brewster Brothers sees as a missed opportunity to free up more waste resources for recycling.
