We know that preserving the environment is important. That's why we strive to recycle and reuse materials whenever possible. Below are a few examples of how we are repurposing and keeping harmful items out of our landfills.
We demo a lot of structures, but where does all that glass, concrete, and metal go? 95% of all our demolition debris is recycled. Want to know what happens to all those recycled materials? Read more below on all the awesome ways these materials can be reused.
Concrete can be used as a dry aggregate to make new concrete or as a base layer to build roads and highways.
Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled to create new products, including an aggregate that can be used in construction projects.
Steel, rebar, and aluminum are some of the most commonly recycled construction materials. Recycling these items can save precious non-renewable resources. For example, each ton of steel recycled can save 1.5 tons of iron ore, .5 tons of coal, 40% of the water used in production, 75% of the energy needed to make steel from the raw material, 1.28 tons of solid waste, reduction in air emission 86%, and reduction of water pollution by 76%.
