With several quarries and recycling centres around Leeds, Mone Brothers Ltd. has a long tradition in mineral recycling. Since it was founded in 1965, the organisation quickly developed from a simple machinery hire company into one of the biggest providers of construction materials and recycling services in the United Kingdom.
In minute intervals, dumper trucks drive into the roughly 2.5 hectare Fireclay recycling centre, bringing mixed rubble from demolition work and construction sites and take back crushed material and substances with foreign material removed. On average, more than 300,000 tons of this material are processed here every year. While broken bricks are recycled into hard core according to British Standard 6F2 and used primarily as a crushed base layer in highway construction, the recycled demolished concrete is used as a higher quality type 1 layer for anti-frost purposes.
Furthermore, Mone Bros. Ltd. works a great deal with the local supplier market and supports the expansion of the electricity, water and gas network with its material. The companies deliver their mixed rubble and drive away again with recycled type 1.
