Concrete & Asphalt Recycling
Turn Your Costs into Profits to Grow Your Business
Many new developments require the demolition of old structures generating massive amounts of waste. Demolition generates mountains of concrete, asphalt and masonry. Mobile crushing plants reduce chunked materials in size to be reused as base or fill material in the construction process and screening plants help to improve the quality of your new commodity product even further.
Mobile recycling plants allow contractors to process materials where they are generated.
Recycling is a profitable business model even if you are not in the business of recycling.
Generate new sources of income for your business. Aggregates are the new gold.
Many materials can be recovered, recycled and reused in your construction process.
Concrete, asphalt, bricks & masonry and rock can be processed with a crusher to produce a base, subbase or fill material.
In the deconstruction process metals can be collected. In addition, rebar can be liberated from reinforced concrete with a crusher and a magnet.
Wood can be ground or chipped for reuse in landscaping and excavated materials can be screened to produce a clean screened topsoil product.
Recycling is a simple credit-debit calculation. First you need to understand your current costs for disposal of the various materials you generate in the construction and demolition process. Second, you need to gauge how much material it actually is. Third, you need put a price tag on the value of the material once it is processed.
You won't get rid of your disposal cost unless you start recycling.
Trucking costs from the job to the recycling center and picking up new material can be reduced significantly.
You turn something that is worth nothing into a valuable commodity.
“I started crushing because I believed there is a
future in that to get rid of the product. It is getting
more costly to dispose of it. It is getting more expensive
to truck it over the road with DOT and what
