Where Does it All Go?

It's a Vital Part of our Lives

We all use stone, sand and gravel virtually every minute of every day. It's part of the buildings we live and work in, the roads we drive on... even the water we drink is filtered and purified by aggregate. It’s used in everything from paper and paint to chewing gum and household cleansers.
