How construction debris recycling works

The goal of every recycling program is to retain as much value as possible. We’ll help you do that by turning your construction debris into new resources, such as:

  • Inerts that become road base
  • Cardboard, paper, plastics, and metals can be converted into new goods
  • Clean wood becomes mulch or biomass fuel
  • Dirt, rock, and sand become Alternative Daily Cover (ADC) in landfills
  • Crushed concrete becomes gravel or dry aggregate for new concrete
