“Any business practice that is economically viable, socially responsible and environmental friendly. “

By providing environmental and sustainable practices, we as a company aim to meet our needs without comprising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.

We at Tarstone believe in sustainability. Thus we developed a facility which allows us to store and recycle construction waste from road construction. Planning’s from road refurbishment are brought to site and stored prior to use a raw material in the manufacturer of road making materials. Concrete and other wastes including soil and stone are also returned to this facility and stored for recycle or offsite disposal.
