OSSGA Releases ’REPORT TO ONTARIO’S COMMUNITIES | 2013" February 21, 2014
The producers of the stone, sand and gravel used to build Ontario recognize that our industry members must be good neighbours in the communities where we operate, and good stewards of the natural environment. We also recognize that aggregate extraction is a necessary and responsible interim land use. While there are significant economic spin-offs from Ontario’s gravel pits and quarries, the end result of an aggregate operation is never just a hole in the ground. Included in every license for aggregate extraction is a rehabilitation plan detailing exactly how the land will be returned to a use that suits the regional landscape and the local community.
