When you need to build a wall, look no further than ReCon Walls.

At Boxley, we strive every day to be responsible stewards of the environment and develop managers into sustainability-minded leaders through service on our Green Team. Each year, we produce a Sustainability Report to share with our customers, partners and communities to report on our efforts. Here are a few highlights from our 2014 Sustainability Report:

As part of our commitment to sustainability and green production, we've invested in a new asphalt plant in Lynchburg, VA. This Astec Double Barrel Drum Asphalt plant is the future of asphalt production at Boxley.

One of the biggest considerations in our decision-making processes here at Boxley is how our actions, products and processes affect the environment around us. Our vernal pools project at Piney River Quarry is a perfect example of how we work to preserve wildlife habit as part of our operational planning.

To preserve a vernal pool that was within our mining operation, we worked with two nationally recognized wetlands experts, Boxley employees, and other volunteers to conduct the first known transplant of a vernal pool in Virginia—home to several rare species, including the fairy shrimp and the big-headed mole salamander.

The construction industry isn’t widely known for being “green, ” but Boxley is working to change that. 
All of our concrete plants throughout Virginia are Green-Star Certified by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association. Green-Star Certification recognizes concrete companies that maintain Environmental Management Systems that reduce, if not eliminate, negative environmental impacts resulting from operations.
