DID YOU KNOW THAT ASPHALT PAVEMENT – INCLUDING ROADS, STREETS, PARKING LOTS, & AIRPORT RUNWAYS – IS 100% RECYCLABLE?

Research provided by the National Asphalt Pavement Association shows that the quality of recycled asphalt pavement is as good, or even better, than brand new pavement, even when recycled the second and third time.  It continues to be reclaimed and reused at a greater rate than any other product in the U.S.  This is nearly twice as much as paper, glass, aluminum and plastics combined.

Benefits Of Asphalt Recycling

  1. Cost benefits – The cost per ton of Recycled Asphalt Products is substantially less than virgin asphalt.  This lowers the cost of your project AND saves the taxpayers billions of dollars each year in taxes.
  2. It helps the environment – Asphalt recycling reduces our consumption of scarce natural resources (aggregate and asphalt) and simultaneously keeps 75 million tons of material out of US landfills. By reducing the amount of mining, quarrying and oil consumption, this, in turn, reduces carbon emissions.
  3. Its Durable –  properly graded RAP (Recycled Asphalt Products) with sufficient asphalt content, that is properly recycled will perform nearly identically to virgin asphalt.
