What are 6F2 aggregates?

The 6F class of aggregates refers to those materials which have been recycled from building, demolition or other construction sites. Recycled or secondary aggregates are becoming increasingly important to sites throughout the UK as demand rises.

Benefits of Recycled Aggregates

Recycled aggregates have many benefits. First, using recycled aggregates reduces the demand for primary aggregates and the work required to produce them. Recycled aggregates assist the entire construction industry, allowing it to be more sustainable. Ultimately, this leaves more aggregate available for use by future generations.

Recycled aggregate consists of demolition and construction materials, but it can also include industrial by-products like slate, colliery spoil and power station ash, to name a few.

Derwent Waste Management recycles aggregates into the 6F class.

Class 6F1 refers to selected fine grading that can include any combination of materials with the exception of unburned colliery spoil.
