What is Recycled Aggregate?

With many businesses and consumers becoming more aware about the environmental impact, there has been an increase in the use of more sustainable sources. One example of this is aggregates. Recycled aggregates are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative.

Recycled aggregates are developed from reprocessing materials that have originally been used in construction. They can include sand, gravel, crushed stone and asphalt. The recycled product is to the exact standard as new products.

We have access to a wide range of recycled aggregates from demolition and land clearance sites across the UK.

What are the Benefits?

There are many benefits to using aggregates that are recycled. Firstly, they are highly sustainable as it reduces the amount of landfill. Additionally, excess material such as metal can also be recycled. This type of aggregate is incredibly environmentally friendly.

Recycled aggregate has been proven to be just as strong as virgin aggregate. It can be made even stronger if it is mixed with concrete or cement. They are also more cost-effective to produce compared to freshly mined materials. This means the sale price will also be less. Reselling aggregate is far more cost-effective than sending it to a landfill.

The construction industry is responsible for up to 50% of landfill waste, so it is no surprise that many companies are looking for a more sustainable method.
