The asphalt paving and road building industry has been “green” long before it became fashionable to do so. Today asphalt and concrete is 100% recyclable. It is not trash nor is it considered hazardous waste, as so many people think. Rather, these products can be recycled over and over again from old roadways, sidewalks, driveways, curbs, foundations, etc. Recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) is also crushed and sized and then blended back into virgin asphalt mixtures at rates between 15% and 40%. It can also be used as aggregate base. Recycling these products prevents them from ending up in dumps and landfills, while at the same time conserving natural resources and protecting the environment.
Today, API Construction Corp accepts clean waste asphalt at both of our asphalt plants for recycling. There is no dumping fee for this material.
