Concrete is in just about every structure we know. So as buildings age and need to be replaced, there will naturally be concrete waste. Recycling concrete is a great way to give it a new life and make a positive impact on your bottom line.

How is Recycled Concrete Made?

Recycled concrete is simply old concrete that is crushed into more manageable sizes using heavy duty industrial machinery. Equipment is used to sift, clean, filter, and remove metal and other contaminants. The resulting recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) is then screened to separate it into various sizes.

What is Recycled Concrete Used For?

When it comes to reusing and recycling concrete, the end uses are countless. In most cases, anywhere that gravel or other crushed stone is used, recycled concrete can be used instead. A bit of research can best determine how recycled concrete could benefit your project list, but here are a few top, common uses:

General bulk fills – site stabilization, bottom layer base, and backfill under walkways, patios, retaining walls, and other structures

Waterway bank protection – riprap and fill for wire gabions

Drainage – base or fill in landscaping and construction projects

Construction – subbase material for roads, parking lots, driveways, utility trenches, and shoulder stone

Crushed and recycled concrete can also be incorporated into new concrete, cutting down on the consumption of raw materials.

What are the Benefits of Recycling Concrete?

RCA is an ideal way to reuse a product that requires a lot of processing in the first place. Recycling concrete keeps it out of landfills and fulfilling a purpose. It’s also a great way to save money that is usually budgeted for the mining, processing and transporting of new aggregates or dumping waste materials. And if you’re a contractor looking to green up your work and earn valuable certifications, recycled concrete can help with those goals.

One major issue in modern cities is a lack of permeable paving that can allow for drainage after a heavy rainstorm. Recycled concrete makes an ideal paving material that provides plenty of drainage to help avoid sewer system overload and flooding, while also replenishing groundwater.
