You may wonder whether you can recycle concrete from construction or demolition projects. Recycling can be environmentally-friendly and cost-effective choice. It reduces the amount of waste in a landfill, and it reduces your costs in transporting concrete to be dumped and disposal fees at the landfill.
Uses for Recycled Concrete
Concrete is recycled by breaking it up and crushing it into specific sizes so it can be used for particular purposes.
Recycled concrete is sometimes used as an aggregate for creating new concrete but is more often used as an aggregate in sublayers of concrete.
How to Get It Done
A variety of difficulties, such as removing metal reinforcements and crushing equipment able to handle steel reinforcements, have existed when recycling concrete.
However, these problems have been addressed in recent years and improvements have been made to the process.
To have concrete from a construction site recycled, call a recycling company and ask them to bring equipment to your site. Often, however, you will need to transport your concrete from the demolition site to the recycling center.
Recycling concrete is a great idea for saving dump fees and helping the environment.
