McNally pit wins rehabilitation award

The McNally East Pit operated by CBM Aggregates has earned the Progressive Rehabilitation Award from the Ontario Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (OSSGA).

Presented at OSSGA’s annual conference in Toronto, the Progressive Rehabilitation Award recognizes advances in the rehabilitation of extracted portions of active pit or quarry sites.

“Staff at CBM are very proud of our rehabilitation program and history of success,” said eastern region lands manager Mike Le Breton. “We are always looking at new and innovative ways to improve the work we do.”

Chief executive officer of OSSGA, Ted Wigdor, said, “We encourage our members to go above and beyond their legal requirements to be valued members of their community. Our members understand that being a productive member of the community goes hand in hand with doing business in a community.”

OSSGA is a non-profit industry association representing over 280 sand, gravel, and crushed stone producers and suppliers of valuable industry products and services.

Collectively, members supply 75 per cent of the approximately 164 million tonnes of aggregate consumed annually on average in the province to build and maintain Ontario’s infrastructure needs.

OSSGA works in partnership with government and the public to promote a safe and competitive aggregate industry contributing to the creation of strong communities in the province.
