QRS produces a range of recycled materials, including our unique EcoBase and EcoSurround products.
EcoBase is a replacement for Type 1 and is made in accordance with Appendix A9 of the New Road and Street Works Act 1991, Specification of Reinstatement Openings in the Highway.
It is 95% recycled and provides over 30% cost savings when compared to using conventional recycled materials.
It has a 6-week shelf life which means that there is virtually no waste. SQS supports the use of their recycled materials with a bespoke training package delivered free of charge to clients and third party contractors. In addition to the permanent facility at Scratchwood, a mobile recycling machine produces EcoBase at our other depots.
