What is 6F5?

crushed concrete 6F5 from Avon Material Supplies

6F5 is a recycled aggregate that is made up of crushed hardcore materials including crushed concrete.

In general, our crushed concrete contains materials that range in size from 75mm down to dust making it perfectly suited for use as bulk fill.

A recycled aggregate such as 6F5 is formed by the processing of inorganic material that has previously been used in construction.

‘Our crushed material is available loose or in bulk bags and can be delivered across Dorset and Hampshire or collected from Canford Recycling Centre, Wimborne’

Common uses of 6F5

Our 6F5 is often chosen by individuals, businesses and construction sites for a range of purposes across Dorset and Hampshire including:

  • Capping layer
  • Trench fill
  • Temporary roads
  • Oversite fill

The superior material that is distributed by Avon Material Supplies is produced at Canford Recycling Centre using modern concrete crushing plant machinery that is expertly maintained and operated.

‘The inert facility at Canford Recycling Centre near Wimborne also manufactures a wide range of aggregates including topsoil alternative, sharp washed sand, all in ballast and type 1 recycled.’

AMS donate 3 sacks of presents to the Wave 105 Mission Christmas appeal

In the run up to Christmas we are all busy searching for presents for our loved ones, but not everyone has this pleasure. Wave 105 have launched their Mission Christmas appeal for another year to help the 88,635 children who are living in poverty in the Wave 105 region.

Wave 105 work to help disadvantaged children in the Wave region to have the special Christmas morning they deserve. The radio station has set up multiple donation points across the region with the hope that individuals and businesses will donate a present towards the appeal.

With the help of many volunteers, they sort the gifts into age groups, then wrap and distribute to disadvantaged children in the Hampshire and Dorset areas.

Last year, the Wave Mission Christmas appeal collected 78,382 gifts to support local children.

As a leading supplier of aggregates across Dorset and Hampshire and a company focused on helping the community it operates within, AMS are delighted to once again support the Wave 105 Mission Christmas appeal

This year Niall Roberts, General Manager of AMS and his wife, Helen who also works for AMS, delivered three full sacks of toys to the offices of Wave 105.2 in Fareham.

“AMS are always keen to help out in the local community. We are very happy to support the Mission Christmas appeal for another year; it’s such a fantastic cause. It’s pleasing to know the presents we have purchased and received from our staff  as donations will make a child’s Christmas special.”
