SIS Quarry Earns Environmental Excellence award

CONGRATULATIONS! to all of our team at the SIS Quarry in Buncombe, Illinois…. Again!

Southern Illinois Stone Company has earned the Environmental Excellence – Gold award from the

Illinois Association of Aggregate Producers (IAAP). The Environmental Excellence Awards program recognizes those producer members who have taken exemplary strides to comply with the multitude of

Federal, State, and local regulations concerning the protection of our air, water, and land. These efforts not only reward our Company specifically, they reward the industry, and will help to enhance the public’s perception of both in the process.

The site is judged on nineteen different criteria including approved training program; written Environmental Policy; Method 9 – Visible Emissions Evaluation; Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP); and Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC).

EHS Manager Bruce Menke is shown accepting the award on behalf of the entire Illinois aggregates team.

The commitment of the SIS Quarry team to produce and sell aggregates in an environmentally-conscious manner has been recognized throughout the entire state.
