    How Asphalt Recycling Works

    Asphalt is valuable for paving because it can be recycled and reused several times, making it an environmentally friendly material to use for your project.

    The recycling process for asphalt involves a few steps to prepare it for use on the next surface.

    Once the new recycled asphalt paving surface has been installed, it can be expected to last just as long as a new asphalt surface. Lifespan of either surface type will vary depending on traffic, weather, drainage, regular maintenance, and other environmental factors.

    The Asphalt Recycling Process


    Pavement materials are removed from the old surface using milling equipment to grind it up into smaller pieces, which are collected and transported to a recycling facility.


    At the recycling facility, crushers are used to further break down the material, which is then screened to remove any larger pieces.


    New asphalt binder and aggregate are blended with the recycled material to create a Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP) mixture.


    The RAP mixture is tested to check if it meets the specifications for its future project as well as to ensure it can be recycled again in the future.


    Once the RAP mixture has been prepared and quality assured, it can then be transported to the job site and used to pave new surfaces or repair existing ones.

    How Concrete Recycling Works

    Concrete, much like asphalt, can often be crushed and transformed into aggregates for new projects.

    Concrete recycling helps to reduce the amount of waste entering landfills and conserves resources, as well as reduces carbon emissions created during the production of new concrete.

    After installation, a recycled concrete surface can be expected to last just as long as one constructed with new materials, as long as the new material is high-quality. At Macadam Construction, we thoroughly inspect all of our materials to ensure only the best quality is used in our projects.

    Want to do your part to recycle your concrete and help the environment when repairing or replacing your surface? Contact us today and we will answer any questions you have about the concrete recycling process or discuss the specifics of your project.

    The Concrete Recycling Process


    We start by collecting concrete waste from demolition sites, construction sites, or other facilities with excess concrete that is no longer needed.


    A crusher is used to break down the concrete chunks into smaller pieces of various aggregate sizes.


    Once crushed, the broken down pieces are sorted by size and quality to determine which projects they can be used for in the future. Any contaminants are also removed at this time (i.e. wood or metal scraps).


    If needed, sorted aggregates are washed to remove any final dirt or debris that may impact final product quality.


    These recycled concrete aggregates can now be put to use in various projects such as roads, parking lots or structures, or even base material for new structures.
