"The care of the earth is our most ancient and most worthy and, after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it, and to foster its renewal, is our only legitimate hope."
– Wendell Berry
711 Materials is dedicated to maintaining the highest possible environmental standards at all our aggregate operations. We work closely with our neighbors and local communities to create open lines of communication to address any concerns or questions.
711 Materials follows environmental best practices that go above and beyond environmental compliance. We practice concurrent reclamation at our active pits to reduce the overall impact of the mining operation on the surrounding land. This practice allows areas immediately surrounding active mining operations to revert to a reclaimed, productive land use on a much shorter timeline than traditional mining and reclamation practices.
Our long-term goal for habitat restoration at our aggregate locations is to create stable, bio-diverse environments by using native vegetation and appropriate water management techniques. We operate in a variety of environments and assess each individual location to create a site-appropriate reclamation plan. 711 Materials has a history of preserving and protecting the diversity within and adjacent to its mining operations.
