A Look at the Concrete Recycling Process

Recycling helps the environment, promotes sustainability, and can even save you money. Although it may not be the first material that comes to mind when you think about recycling, commercial concrete in San Francisco can be broken down and repurposed rather than shipped off to already overflowing landfills. The process starts with concrete demolition, and the resulting aggregate can be used in a variety of applications. Feel free to continue on if you are interested in taking a look at the concrete recycling process.

Choosing a Recycling Company

If you have commercial concrete that you would like to recycle, the first step you should take is finding a concrete recycling company. Look for an established, trustworthy company that offers the services you need. Companies like A-1 Ready Mix offer demolition and crushing services in addition to concrete recycling. It also helps to look for a concrete recycling company that gives you different recycling options; some prefer to bring their old concrete to a yard and recycle it there, while others would rather have the recycling company come to them. You can learn a great deal about your commercial concrete recycling options by visiting the recycling companies’ websites.

Crushing the Concrete

Once you have decided on a recycling company, the next step is to have your used concrete crushed. Your specialists will break your concrete down into smaller pieces, and eventually you will be left with aggregate. Aggregate itself is actually one component of concrete, and it can be used in a variety of applications. Unfortunately a great deal of concrete aggregate has been deposited into landfills rather than recycled.

Making Use of Aggregates

The final step in concrete recycling is putting the resulting aggregates to use. There are many uses for aggregate, but they depend on the size. Larger aggregate may be used in drain fields or landscaping, or it can even be used as aggregate in new concrete. You might find other types of aggregate in driveways, trenches, or pipe bedding. The use of old, broken down concrete aggregate is an essential part of the concrete recycling process.
