Transport and Technical Services (TTS) is pleased to announce that a new contract for receiving and processing recyclable inert material such as stone and rubble has been awarded to AAL Recycling Ltd (AAL).
The contract was awarded following a competitive tendering process and runs for a 5 year period during which time AAL is responsible for receiving and processing recyclable inert material from the local construction and demolition industry at the Aggregates Recycling Facility at La Collette.
Materials received at La Collette will be processed on site and recycled into secondary aggregates, which can return back into the local construction industry.
The new aggregates recycling contract will come into force on 4 August 2014 and AAL and TTS will be communicating directly with their commercial customers in advance of this date.
Deputy Kevin Lewis, Minister for TTS, said ‘ Aggregates recycling is well established in the Island, however this contract is a major step forward as it supports much greater recycling within the local construction and demolition industry. Recycling is at the heart of this contract so that the Island benefits from the value that remains in the inert waste material generated from development projects.’
Alan Langlois, Managing Director of AAL said ‘AAL Recycling has been successfully recycling Jersey’s inert waste material for 7 years and we are excited by this opportunity to further enhance the rate of recovery going forward. We intend to explore innovative ways to increase the Island’s inert waste recycling rate and we are dedicated to working with all of the pertinent stakeholders to ensure that Jersey’s precious inert resources continue to be preserved where possible while the Island’s inert waste is processed into high quality products we can all be proud of.’
