Environmental Commitment

Protecting our Environment

As a major producer and supplier of ready-mix concrete, Breckenridge Material Company understands the importance of an ongoing commitment to the environment and the communities where we operate. Compliance with all federal, state, and local legislation pertaining to our business is essential and the foundation of our environmental program.  It is Breckenridge's policy to make every practical effort to reduce any negative impact to the environment that may result from the manufacturing, transportation, or delivery of our finished products and services.  It is our belief that this can be accomplished through:

  • Maintaining and complying with our environmental permits and other requirements established through legislation.
  • Implementing an environmental system that requires regular self-inspection with measureable improvement goals.
  • Ensuring necessary environmental controls are in-place and maintained in a manner that minimizes the possibility of pollution and nuisance to our local communities.
  • Investing in recycling opportunities that prove to reduce the amount of solid waste our company contributes to landfills.
  • Maintaining our current facilities in a manner that protects or enhances the natural environment on and around that property.
  • Listening to and responding to the environmental needs of our local communities, neighbors, and agency representatives.
  • Educating our employees, customers, and sub-contractors on how our business impacts the environment and the best practices that we have implemented to reduce those impacts.
