Weed Free Aggregates for Quarry Managers

Equipment and vehicles transport invasive plants not only within a quarry, but from quarry to quarry. When contaminated equipment comes from a weedy quarry, it can easily carry and subsequently spread invasive plant seed. This happens when seeds fall off the vehicle, or especially when contaminated aggregate or fill is transferred between quarries.
