Many site development, bulk excavation and/or utility excavation or trench work generates extra material that cannot be managed at the site of the earthwork or original excavation. This material generally must be managed offsite in accordance with specific placement and regulatory permitting criteria. To assist our customers and clients and help them manage the regulatory matrix, Blooming Glen Contractors, Inc. (BGC) has the capability assist with management of inbound Reclamation Fill (formerly Clean Fill) materials.
Given our vast knowledge of the civil construction arena and our unique connection to H&K Group, Inc. (H&K), we can manage both small and large inbound soil and rock projects.

As one of the region's largest construction aggregate (quarry) owner/operators, H&K’s Reclamation Fill locations accept soil, dirt, and other materials deemed to be reclamation fill by the PADEP.  Our asphalt plants accept asphalt millings and broken asphalt chunks that are then recycled into new asphalt products.  Some of our quarries accept concrete and block which can be recycled into road base material.

These are just a few of the ways BGC shows its concern and interest in preserving our environment and being a proactive participant in improving the communities in which we both live and serve.
