Use of Crushed Materials


What can the crushed product be used for?

The Economics of recycling concrete

  • Produce specification sized recycled aggregates at your location
  • Avoid haul-off costs and landfill disposal fees
  • Eliminate the expense of aggregate material imports and exports
  • Increase project efficiency and improve job cost – recycled concrete aggregates yield more volume by weight (up to 15%)
  • Minimize impact to community infrastructure by reducing import and export trucking
  • Back fill around a site
  • Roadways and Driveways
  • Type 1 mix
  • Type 2 mix
  • Capping and binding
  • Decorative aggregate for gardens
  • Vermin control measures (glass)
  • Size reduction on site- more efficient transportation costs
  • Waste reduction and recycling for removed aggregates and waste

What can you crush?

  • Bricks
  • Concrete
  • Glass
  • Slate
  • Granite
  • Ceramics
  • All aggregate products

Recycled aggregates can be used in a variety of construction applications, such as:

  • Bituminous (asphalt) road construction
  • Ground improvements
  • Earthworks – cuttings and embankments
  • Utilities reinstatement
  • Shallow foundations
  • Shallow and deep foundations
  • Buildings – residential and industrial

Recycled and secondary aggregates may also be used in a range of construction materials, such as:

  • Concrete – coarse and fine aggregates mixed with cement and water
  • Asphalt – coarse and fine aggregates mixed with bitumen
  • Hydraulically bound materials – coarse and fine aggregates which set and harden when a hydraulic binder is added
  • Unbound materials – materials ranging in size from fine grains to stony material
