How Does Recycling Help the Environment?

Recycling both concrete and wood waste materials into useful products helps in greatly reducing the harmful effects on the environment.

 

Wood recycling helps in preventing excess accumulation of waste in landfills, which in turn leads to reduced air and water pollution. Concrete recycling help in conserving natural resources by limiting the need for gravel mining, water, coal and gas.

 

Uses of Recycled Concrete

Recycled concrete aggregate is emerging as one of the preferred construction materials across the world. With the increased emphasis on sustainable development technologies worldwide, RCA is gaining popularity over other types of construction materials.

 

Aggregate derived from the process of recycling concrete can be used for several construction projects. Larger pieces of recycled concrete can be used in the walls of buildings or as slabs on pathways, while small pieces can be used for sub-base gravel on a roadway. The various uses for recycled concrete are quite comprehensive and it can even be used for landscaping rock or stacked to form a retaining or privacy wall. Used across different industries and projects, recycled concrete aggregate lends strength to various structures. Call us to get more information about our services.
