In the past, any leftover materials that were no longer required on a construction site would have probably found their way into landfill. But now, as the industry looks to follow suit with the rest of the world, there are much more efficient and environmentally-friendly ways that these materials can be utilised.
One of these ways is to transform these recycled materials into quality aggregates using sand, stone, asphalt, gravel and more, so they can be used for a range of purposes across the construction industry.
- Crushed Concrete – also known as RCA (Recycled crushed aggregate) is the by-product of demolition industry, with less fines than 6F5 its perfect for use as a bulk filling material.
- Recycled Type 3 – usually a 40mm crushed concrete product which has been screened to produce a reduced fine aggregate. Primarily used for when a subbase with less fines is required.
- 6F5 – is an unbound recycled aggregate that is made up of crushed hardcore materials including crushed concrete. In general, 6F5 contains materials that range in size from 75mm down to dust, making it perfectly suited for use as a bulk fill / capping material.
- Recycled Type 1 – is created from recovered concrete, aggregates and asphalt. The blend of solids and fines make this a cheaper alternative to primary subbases and aggregates. When compacted, to reduce the voids, it gives a strong load bearing layer.
