AGGREGATES IN ONTARIO – DID YOU KNOW?

Each year in Ontario we use approximately 170 million tonnes of aggregates, which translates to 14 tonnes per person. It is most obvious that we use sand, stone and gravel to build our homes, schools, roadways and other various infrastructure, but beyond that there are many lesser known uses.

Aggregates are virtually everywhere, even if we can’t see them.
