Concrete recycling is an important part of an economical, environmentally friendly building project. In 2010, the Construction Materials Recycling Association (CMRA) estimated that the United States recycles approximately 140 million tons of concrete per year. Recycling redirects concrete away from landfills so that it can be processed and sorted for use in other construction projects, such as in a base layer, riprap, or as an ingredient in new concrete. The raw material that is created out of the recycled product is known as recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) or crushed concrete aggregate (CCA), which Yannuzzi provides in many sizes and blends to fit your project. We have a proud history in the concrete recycling business. Yannuzzi owns and operates a New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) licensed Class “B” Recycling Facility, and is one of the East Coast’s most respected concrete recyclers. Since 1998, we have recycled more than 13 million tons of concrete, brick/block, pavers, asphalt and rock.
Quick and Easy Concrete Recycling
Our goal is to recycle as much concrete as possible to reduce the impact of construction on the environment, so we will work with you to find the best way to receive your concrete rubble. Whether you prefer to truck your concrete to Yannuzzi’s world class recycling center, send it by rail, or simply pile it in a clean location on site or in one of our recycling containers and have us pick up the material, Yannuzzi will be happy to provide you with the concrete recycling services best matched to your project and schedule. Once the concrete reaches our facility, we sort the concrete into grades, then crush and screen it into sizes that are suited for a variety of building purposes. There is no need to remove any reinforcing steel; we can easily separate this material from the pile once it reaches our recycling center.
The Environmentally Friendly Choice
Our cities are built with concrete, and whenever an improvement or demolition is completed, part of that concrete must be removed. Our clients are able to reduce the impact on the environment by keeping tons of material away from local landfills by sorting and shipping this waste to our state-of-the-art recycling yard. In addition, by using recycled concrete as an aggregate in the creation of new concrete, as a bedding foundation, or as riprap, our clients help to conserve our natural stockpiles of gravel and limestone as well as all of the energy that would be expended in the effort to quarry and transport these materials. Recycling is our business and also our pleasure. We are pleased to help our clients achieve LEED credits in both phases of construction: recycling concrete during the demolition phase and using high quality recycled concrete during the build phase.
