One of the most common byproducts of remodeling and demolition is concrete debris. What should you do with this seemingly un-useful concrete debris? Recycle it! Concrete recycling is a smart, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly way to reuse aggregate left behind. Take a look at some of the key benefits of recycling concrete.
Our landfills are full enough with the regular trash. Concrete is non-biodegradable and will take up valuable landfill space. Don’t add to the problem by throwing away your concrete. You can help concrete avoid landfills by recycling it. Recycling concrete allows it to be crushed and used in other applications, consequently reducing the need for more landfills.
Reduce the Need for Mining
When you recycle concrete, it means more concrete doesn’t need to be mined. You can help preserve this valuable resource for future generations when you choose to recycle concrete. Recycling concrete into usable aggregates consumes less energy than processing new stone.
A Variety of Applications
Recycled concrete can be used in a variety of construction projects, such as road foundations, landscape materials, soil stabilization, pipe bedding, and more! That means your recycled concrete is used to help bring new projects to life without the hassle of paying for and mining new concrete.
No More Tipping Fees
Tipping fees are usually collected when you take items to a disposal center, and are based on weight and/or volume. Since you aren’t taking your used concrete to a disposal center, you can avoid paying these fees. Instead, you only pay to have the used concrete removed off the premises and sent to the recycling center.
Same Quality as New Resources
Recycled concrete is just as effective and high-quality as new concrete. If you choose to use recycled concrete for your next project, you aren’t sacrificing quality. Your next project will be just as stable and just as good in quality as if you were to use new concrete.
Cheaper to Use
Recycled concrete is cheaper than freshly-mined aggregate. Therefore you can save on construction costs. The best part is that although it’s cheaper than freshly mined concrete, it’s still the same high-quality concrete.
