Granite Construction and DTG Recycle came to an agreement by which Granite will operate the Anderson Rock Quarry at the DTG Recycle Sustainability Park in Yakima, Washington.

The agreement gives Granite the exclusive right to mine and manufacture aggregates and asphalt at the facility.

In addition to the Anderson Rock Quarry, the DTG Recycle Sustainability Park is home to the Summitview Landfill and the Cowiche Canyon Recycling Facility. The quarry has been in operation since 1983, serving as a producer of construction materials for local industry. Materials from the facility are used in road construction and repair, building construction, landscaping and other uses that support the development and upkeep of the Yakima area.

“We are excited to have Granite run the quarry operation at the facility, and we know their commitment to the Yakima community will help us continue to responsibly produce aggregate needed for local development and maintenance,” says Tom Vaughn, CEO of DTG Recycle.

Adds Brad Estes, Granite vice president of construction materials: “We’re excited to partner with DTG Recycle on the Anderson Rock Quarry. Sustainability is a Granite core value, and we see lots of benefits to partnering with a company that is so focused on recycling industrial and construction waste to higher uses.”
