OSSGA - Progressive Rehabilitation Award (2008, 2007, 2000, 1997)

Commitment to the environment is evidenced by a company's proactive approach to progressively rehabilitating its pits and quarries in a timely manner.

In most cases, the area is rehabilitated back to agricultural lands so it can be farmed to produce various crops while still remaining an active pit. This award is given by the Ontario Stone, Sand & Gravel Association.
