Lee Sand and Gravel Pit Restoration Project will be returned to the way it was in this circa 1950 photo thanks to efforts by United Soil Management and the Town of Stouffville
United Soils Management’s Fill Permit application to restore the Lee Sand & Gravel Pit back to farmland with a woodlot was approved by Town Council on Tuesday, December 3rd. We will gradually be saying good-bye to the hole in the ground and hello farmland.
We must thank United Soils Management for taking all possible measures to ensure that the Lee Sand & Gravel Pit Restoration Project will have minimum daily impact on the community and virtually no impact on weekends. Mr. Alec Cloke, his team of experts and the Town Staff are all to be commended for working together diligently to develop a very comprehensive set of rules governing the restoration of a pit operation.
Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Alec Cloke owner of United Soils management knows this is a man of his word whose commitment to the communities in which he carries out his business is nothing short of amazing.
Here is just a partial list of organizations and events that United Soils graciously sponsors in our community. They include Food Bank, The Legion, Local skating club, Local Hockey, Winter Carnival, and the Fall Fair. In addition they sponsor at least four contests a year for kids that require them to think about Canada and/or their families.
In conclusion United Soils Management is not only setting the Gold Standard in Pit Restoration but also the Gold Standard in being a great corporate citizen. In other words a great addition to our community.

United Soils Management has followed through with its promise to ensure that street cleaning is a priority. Owner, Alec Cloke has purchased a street sweeper/cleaner and modified it to maximize its effectiveness. Mr. Cloke had a special water tank fitted to the sweeper. This controls the amount of water being used in the cleaning process and keeps it to a minimum based on the road conditions at any given time. You will never be driving through a muddy mess that conventional street cleaners can leave behind. United Soils Management also has a full time operator on staff that spends five hours a day cleaning Ninth Line. I think we can safely say that in keeping with United Soils “Gold Standard” policy, Mr. Cloke has set a “Gold Standard” for street cleaning.
