Walker Aggregates Operation Wins OSSGA Award


Orillia Pits, operated by Walker Aggregates Inc., in the Village of Hawkestone, Ontario, Canada, received the 2018 Community Relations Award from the Ontario Stone, Sand & Gravel Association.

Walker Aggregates Inc. said it is committed to keeping its Orillia Pits safe, clean, and in good standing with its neighbors.

The operation's employee safety training program, Start Up, as well as traffic signage and vehicle beacons, help prevent incidents on its roads. At the same time, dust and noise control measures plus a robust neighbor complaint system ensure the impacts of its operations are regularly monitored and addressed.

Community members are always kept updated on all activities at the site thanks to the operation's Skipping Stones newsletter. They are also invited to share their feedback and concerns during the summer barbecues, holiday wine and cheese receptions, and ongoing online and in-person interactions. 

Outside of its gates, Orillia Pits supports the growth of its community through material donations; recipients of those donations in 2018 included the local Rugby Community Centre and Oro-Medonte's Warminster Park.
