Walker Aggregates wins two community relations awards

Walker Aggregates has received two 2018 Community Relations Awards from the Ontario Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (OSSGA), according to a report by Orillia Matters.

The awards recognise companies who have demonstrated leadership in promoting good neighbour relations and community involvement, education and industry awareness.

Orillia Pits, located in the Village of Hawkestone, received the award for its commitment to keeping the pits safe and clean.

The employee training programme, Start Up, as well as traffic signage and vehicle beacons help prevent incidents on its roads while dust and noise control measures. In addition, a neighbour complaint system helps ensure the impacts of operations are regularly monitored.

Walker Aggregates distributes a newsletter called Skipping Stones which keeps community members updated on all activities at the site. The company invites residents to share their feedback during summer barbecues, holiday wine and cheese receptions and online and in-person interactions.

Orillia Pits also made material donations to the local Rugby Community Centre and Oro-Medonte’s Warminster Park in 2018.

Severn Quarry, based in the City of Orillia, received the award for a range of initiatives, including the purchase and maintenance of equipment and procedures that help to reduce the impact that blasting has on local residents.

The quarry’s employees keep residents updated on blasting schedules and provide information on site news and activities.

Walker Aggregates uses a range of communication channels such as its website, its Cornerstone newsletter and get-togethers arranged by the quarry’s public liaison committee.
