The Future is Green

Mallard Sand & Gravel strives to be the greenest company in the industry, a continuous and ongoing practice. We recognize the importance of our role in addressing air quality, water quality, and land quality issues. For this reason, we keep up-to-date on best practices and policies that enable us to provide our products and services more efficiently while being aware of the effects our operations may have on the environment. Our employees receive nearly four hours of training on proper environmental practices.

Improving Air and Water Quality

We spray water on our aggregates to minimize dust, making our workplace and the surrounding areas a healthier place. We also implement a dust collection system to improve air quality. Our vehicles maintain a "no idle" policy which reduces fuel consumption and air pollution. Water quality is improved by controlling water run-off and implementing erosion control at each site. Wasting water is a major concern worldwide, which is why we use recycled water for washing rock used in concrete.


We recycle asphalt shingles and used asphalt pavement. The used asphalt is recycled on site. Research shows that recycled asphalt, when applied and designed properly, performs like new pavement. We also recycle office materials, pop cans, used tires, and motor oil.
