WHY CHOOSE RECYCLED CONCRETE PRODUCTS?

A. CDOT Class 6,  Road Base Recycled Concrete:

  1. Lower unit weight. Modified proctor density = 120 lbs./cu. ft. = 1.65 tons/compacted cubic yard. This means better yield than that of local virgin bases. Advantage is typically 15% or greater.
  2. Is a stronger base than most of the virgin (quarry or pit) bases. Hveem test results typically show “R”  value in excess of 80. CDOT specifications are a minimum of 78. Crushed concrete base will actually attain a compression strength when compacted at optimum moisture. Laboratory tests show a compression strength of approximately 60 psi at 7 days.
  3. Concrete base excels at durability. After being compacted in place, it is virtually immune to future damage due to adverse moisture conditions. It will perform very similar to a cement treated base. It is presently being accepted by local specifiers as an acceptable substitute for flowable concrete fill.

B. Screened Rock (Recycled Concrete):

  1. Unit weight advantage. Approximately 1.15 ton per compacted cubic yard.
  2. Is excellent for stabilization purposes, and is a good free draining aggregate.
  3. Is widely used as core fill in block retaining wall systems & sanitary under drains.

C. Last but not least is the community advantage of recycling:

  1. Preservation of virgin deposits.
  2. Lower traffic/energy impact.
  3. Waste stream minimization.

IT MAKES GOOD DOLLAR AND COMMON SENSE!!!
