ReAgg’s Washington DC crushed aggregates delivery quarries provide some of the richest and environmentally friendly construction materials in the North East Corridor. Recycled aggregates in concrete are changing the way we use construction materials.
Construction Materials Protects Natural Resources
What is important to know about construction material is how they are judged. Increasingly construction materials are being judged by their ecological characteristics. Recycled aggregates in concrete have become an important tool in protecting natural resources because it eliminates the need for disposal.
Once the recycling process is complete, the aggregate recycled concrete acts much like the natural rock. The FHWA found that 49 states use recycled concrete in some form. See ACI 555 (2001) for more information on processing old concrete with recycled concrete aggregates.
The use of natural sands allows up to 30 percent of natural crushed coarse aggregate to be replaced by the recycled aggregate without affecting the integrity of the mechanical properties of the concrete.
The transportation of RCA with concrete is placed and compacted in the same manner as conventional concrete. Our Washington DC crushed aggregate delivery staff supplies aggregate materials to the area.
This process provides sustainability by reducing the number of materials that must be landfilled, eliminating waste disposal and removing embedded metals for recycling. This reduces the need for the use of natural aggregates. Using ReAgg’s delivery or onsite stone crushing services increases economic impact while decreasing the environmental footprint.
