What's Inside
An active and effective community
relations program helps quarries
accomplish many good things outside of
their normal operations. Neighbors can
be more supportive of a local aggregates
facility if they know more about what
goes on "behind the fences" and where
the products are used. Building those
relationships with neighbors helps improve
relationships with elected officials and
regulators at local and federal levels.
Learn how community relations has
helped improve the bottom line of several
companies in this month's REVIEW.
