Frequently Asked Questions

Across the industry, construction aggregates are graded according to their size rather than the material.

MOT Type 1 aggregates range in size from 40mm to dust, whether new or recycled.

This size allows for better interlocking when compacted, adds strength, and allows for structures to be built on top of them securely.

Other building aggregates also range in size, including:

• MOT Type 2: 0-20mm

• MOT Type 3: 0-40mm

• Crushed brick: available as a range from 6-14mm for landscaping projects, or up to 35mm for construction projects.

If you need to order recycled MOT Type 1 for projects in Widnes, St Helens, or Liverpool, give us a call at 0151 257 8816 – our team should be able to fulfil orders and deliver to your site in as little as 24- 48 hours.

MOT Type 1 is a granular sub-base construction aggregate that is made from either recycled crushed concrete, rubble, and other recovered building materials, or hardstone quarry: limestone, granite, basalt, or gritstone.

It is chosen because it compacts well, allowing for the construction of almost anything on top, from roads and highways to housing, thanks to its sturdiness.

It has larger granules than MOT Type 2, making it perfect for different applications.

To order MOT Type 1 for your project in Widnes and the surrounding area today, fill in our quick contact form or send an email to and we’ll get back to you!

Sometimes also called DOT Type 1, for the Department of Transport, MOT Type 1 is only lightly permeable, and is therefore not SuDS compliant, according to the Department of Transport Specification for Highway Works.

SuDS compliance relates to Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems, which rates the permeability of construction materials – quite often deciding what the aggregate can then be used for.

This means contractors and site managers would be best opting for MOT Type 3 if they are constructing features or working on projects that need permeability, including roads and other public highways.

If permeability isn’t an important factor for your project, you can order great quality recycled MOT Type 1 aggregate from Grundy & Co.

Simply fill in the enquiry form on your screen or email us at and we’ll get back to complete your order and arrange a convenient delivery.

As a construction aggregate that is made from recycled materials or rock, MOT Type 1 won’t go off, but there is a chance that weather conditions can affect the laying process.

MOT Type 1 won’t wash away in the rain and can help the sub-base to settle – creating a more solid base. However, it is not advised to infill MOT Type 1 in torrential rain!

Similarly, it is possible to pre-infill MOT Type 1 before it can be topped with flagstones or tarmac at a later date, as long as the aggregate is compacted properly and covered tightly to prevent plant and seed ingrowth.

To order MOT Type 1 and any other recycled aggregates, including crushed brick, call the team on 0151 257 8816 or fill in the contact form on the right-hand side of your screen and we’ll get back to you.
