Recycled aggregates is a term used to describe crushed concrete or asphalt from construction debris that is reused in other building projects. This collection of construction refuse is mainly used for road base, cement concrete or other infrastructure projects.
The use of recycled materials for construction is a sustainable move in the construction industry. It prevents materials from having to be collected for building while also preventing more refuse from entering the landfill. This process can be easily done at the demolition site or even a permanent facility.
