Transcor Dirt Services (TDS) has opened its newest borrow pit operation in Hillsborough County, Fla. The company says the site is the largest borrow pit operation in the Tampa Bay Region with a remaining reserve estimated at 7.5 million cubic yards.

The new pit includes Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) approved fill for road construction applications, septic sand, structural fill, beach compatible sand and sand to fulfill a variety of other specialty applications. The borrow pit is designed to accommodate fluctuations in demand while minimizing the impact to loading and checkout time for the trucks transporting transport the materials.

"TDS's outstanding material quality, fast and reliable service will be the key differentiators of this operation. This is a natural fit for our company given our long track record of producing FDOT certified road base materials and other aggregates for construction applications," says Candice Agosto, TDS’ managing director.

TDS, a subsidiary of Transcor Recycling; a Tampa-based recycling company, provides FDOT-certified aggregate materials for civil construction applications. The company also operates a wash plant facility in South Hillsborough County, Fla., and a 20-acre material yard in Tampa, both of which specialize in the construction and demolition recycling services.
