Benefits of Concrete Recycling
From new construction to demolition, disposing of concrete from construction sites is often one of the most challenging obstacles. Recycling concrete is often better than taking old debris straight to a landfill. Concrete recycling centers such as RAMCO can give new life to old construction materials.
Uses of Recycled Concrete
New materials such as concrete aggregate come from breaking down used concrete, which can transform into pavers and other landscaping products. Recycled concrete is also helpful for road construction and riprap projects.
How Concrete Recycling Works
Concrete recycling starts by taking debris and crushing it into smaller pieces. This crushed concrete is known as recycled concrete aggregate (RCA). After the initial pass through the first crusher, RCA gets sent down a conveyor belt and sifted through to check for ferrous metals, dust, and dirt. Next, we filter RCA into piles with similarly sized chunks. RCA can be crushed into an even more acceptable material if necessary. Our concrete recycling centers work hard to ensure you get the cleanest product possible, free of dirt and hazardous waste.
We only accept broken concrete, asphalt, rock, and sand; all concrete must be less than 30 inches long. Your loads cannot contain weeds, clay, red brick, petro-mat, vegetation, clay, wire mesh, trash, or other extraneous materials; however, we also accept rebar for an additional charge. Salvaging dumped materials at our concrete recycling centers is strictly prohibited.
Upon arrival at the site, follow the posted speed limits and dump your loads in the designated area as directed by the RAMCO site personnel. Keep all doors secured while operating construction vehicles, and avoid backing up quickly to dislodge your load. In the event of an injury or accident, leave damaged vehicles where they are and immediately report to supervisory personnel.
