How to Recycle Broken Concrete

Most of the usual suspects behind construction and demolition (C&D) debris can be recycled and repurposed for later use. These materials can be repurposed as road base, converted back into new consumer goods, turned into mulches and biomass fuel, or even form the bedrock of new construction projects.

This last is the case when you’re looking into recycling broken concrete. Broken and crushed concrete can eventually be processed and repurposed into the dry aggregate and gravel base forming new, usable concrete.

Deconstruction and Reuse 

In fact, the Construction and Demolition Debris wing of the CalRecycle program on green building construction and reusing, for instance, aggregates from crushed concrete and soil amendment from grounded up drywall scraps.

The process of taking apart a building piece by piece and recycling certain materials is known as deconstructing. This is definitely a more “green” option than strictly demolishing the building and sending all of the construction and demolition debris to your local landfill.

By deconstructing your building you can recycle and reuse parts that were originally features of the building’s windows, fixtures or underlying frame. Green building and deconstructions and recycling – in lieu of demolitions and straight disposal – keep these construction materials in circulation and put less of a strain on the environment.

A professional waste removal company can be a godsend when it comes to broken down concrete because the stuff is frankly durable and heavy. Fortunately, though, broken down concrete also has a high embodied energy score, which makes it especially suited to recycled reuse as opposed to disposal and landfills.
