And Specialty Granules‘ Annapolis Plant was also recognized by MLPA.

“These Missouri companies have demonstrated leadership in the field of environmental protection and being good stewards of the state’s natural resources,” says Lina Klein, chair of the MLPA Environmental Committee. “The Missouri Limestone Producers Association is proud to recognize these companies for their efforts in setting a standard that all Missouri aggregate operations should strive to achieve.”

This was the first year of the MLPA Environmental Awards program, following a year of discussion and work by the MLPA Environmental Committee. According to MLPA, the program was launched last fall with the goal of rewarding companies who take positive steps in their own environmental policies and practices to help enhance the public perception of the aggregate industry.

MLPA was organized in 1944 to promote and protect the interests of crushed stone operators located or doing business in the state of Missouri. The association is involved in legislative issues, state and federal regulatory matters, community and public relations, and marketing of crushed stone products.
