Litchfield County Recycled Asphalt Services
Can Asphalt Be Recycled?
Each year, approximately 100 million tons of asphalt pavement material is reclaimed. About 95% of that 100 million tons is used to repave roads and highways, which saves taxpayers money on the cost of roads. Recycling asphalt also plays a crucial role in reducing greenhouse emissions, since it minimizes the need for new oil in the asphalt creation process. It also decreases the amount of non-biodegradable materials that are being put in landfills.
Are you looking for a less expensive option for repaving your driveway or parking lot? Recycled asphalt is just as durable as new asphalt but comes with a lower price tag. Black Diamond Asphalt & Earth is a leading provider of recycled asphalt services. Asphalt is 100% recyclable, can be used over and over again, and is one of the most recycled products in the U.S. Sometimes called reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP), recycled asphalt is an affordable and eco-friendly option for meeting all your paving needs.
What Does the Asphalt Recycling Process Involve?
The asphalt recycling process begins with milling. An asphalt milling machine is used to remove the top layer of asphalt from a paved surface without disturbing the sub-base. The asphalt millings are then hauled away to be processed where they are sorted, screened, and sized. The materials are then placed in an asphalt recycler and then bended with our organic proprietary ingredients to make the finished product. Call us to discuss your individual projects so we can create a mix design specific to your project.
What are the Benefits of Recycling Asphalt?
Perhaps the greatest advantage of recycled asphalt for home and business owners who are looking to repave a surface is the ability to do so in a way that stays under budget without sacrificing quality. This is one case in which the recycled version is just as good as the original – some even claim it’s more durable. Driveways and parking lots built from recycled asphalt bond better than those made from other materials. If you are looking for a cost-effective, durable paving option and want to go green, consider using recycled asphalt.
