Thomas Bros. operate Cainhoe Quarry, a non-hazardous waste treatment facility. The site promotes the use of recycled aggregates to help reduce waste materials being disposed of at landfill sites.

Aggregate Recycling Facility

Our recycling facility is a high-tech operation which, through state of the art technology, reduces the amount of landfill, allowing us to promote sustainable quality recycled aggregates. Recycled aggregates reduce the need for primary aggregates and minimise the environmental impact, offering both commercial and environmental benefits to Clients.

Our wash plant takes suitable waste material and out the elements of hardcore of various sizes, sand and silt by processing the feedstock through a washing and screening process producing grades of sand and different sized aggregates from 5-10mm, 10-20mm, 20-40mm and 40-100mm. All of our recycled aggregates are produced under our quality protocol.

Most products can be used for cable and pipe bedding and non-structural concrete manufacture. The oversized material is crushed to produce Type 1 and Type 2, 6F1 and 6F2 fill material.

All of these materials can be supplied and/or delivered from our Cainhoe Quarry, Shefford.
