Recycling the concrete on your site is immensely important to protect natural resources and eliminate the need for sending waste to landfill. Clearland provide a complete concrete crushing and recycling service, which includes assessing, removing and recycling all concrete from your site in a safe, efficient and cost-effective way.
Recycling your concrete waste means less waste is sent to landfill. The environmental impact of this relates both to a reduced need for landfill space and less transportation of waste materials. Embedded metals can be removed from the old concrete and recycled as well, further adding value to the process. If the recycled concrete is used for a new structure, this reduces the need for the manufacturer and transport of new materials, helping the environment even further.
The concrete crushing and recycling process
Recycling unwanted concrete from your site involves breaking, removing, and crushing the concrete into a material that has a specified size and quality. The quality of the waste material determines the quality of the concrete produced. Any reinforcing steel or other embedded items have to be removed, and care must be taken to avoid contamination by materials such as soil and clay balls, asphalt, chlorides, plaster, glass, sealants, gypsum board, paper, wood and roofing materials. Contamination can be avoided through selective demolition, screening and/or air separation, and size reduction in a crusher to aggregate sizes. Once this process is complete, the new concrete is suitable for use across a variety of applications. If processed correctly, the recycled concrete will pass the same tests required of regular concrete.
