CONCRETE RECYCLING

BENEFITS OF CONCRETE RECYCLING:

  • LEEDS Credits (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) (More info on LEEDS)

  • Recycling is Environmentally Friendly in many ways.  Construction and demolition waste in the U.S. is approximately 135 million tons annually, or about 3 lbs/person/day. Recyclable materials can be recycled Road Base, RipRap, Drainage Rock or other Aggregate products.  Choosing recyclable products greatly reduces the amount of material that is landfilled and in turn -  reduces the need for virgin materials in new construction.

  • Greatly Reduces your Trucking Expense from hauling rubble to dumpsite & hauling Aggregates in to jobsite.  We can crush your rock of concrete on-site and greatly reduce or eliminate your trucking needs.  This leads to Reduced Energy (fuel) consumption and reduced traffic on our roadways.

  • Reduces or eliminates land fill fees.

  • Reduces Air Pollution: less pollution from reduced trucking.  It also reduces the need for virigin aggregates that need to be mined.

  • Reduces traffic on our roadways.

  • Reduces your overall cost of pavement breaking and removal and aggregate costs.

 

USES OF RECYCLED PRODUCTS

  • Rip Rap
  • Drainage Rock
  • Road Base (Flexible Base, Flex base)
  • Aggregate for Asphalt & Concrete Paving
  • Crushed Asphalt - reused as RAP (Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement)
  • Land Fill Cover (C&D)
  • Gravel for pathways, driveways, roads
  • Mulch
