Construction and demolition waste is a central component of the solid waste stream, amounting to roughly 25 percent of total solid waste nationally in the US. The largest part of construction and demolition material is concrete, which encompasses around 70 percent of overall waste generated before recycling, according to the U.S. EPA. Construction (21.7 million tons) and demolition (353.6 million tons) activities accounted for over 375 million tons of waste material in total. Road and bridge demolition generated 157.4 million tons of waste as part of this amount.
Over 140 million tons of concrete are recycled annually, according to the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association.
With pressure on landfills continuing to mount, the diversion of construction and demolition waste material in general, and concrete, in particular, remains an important area of interest to policymakers. For industry, there are also significant incentives. One source lists concrete tipping costs at $100 per ton, and related freight charges moving material to the landfill at $0.25 per mile/ton. Sources that use the aggregate include building foundations, curb and gutter, roads, highways, airport runways and more.
There are many cost effective reasons for any construction company to recycle concrete rather than dump or bury it in landfills. Some of these advantages are:
- Reduced tippage and related freight charges
- Cheaper source of aggregate than newly mined
- Reduction of landfill space required for concrete debris
- Using recycled material as gravel reduces the need for gravel mining
- Increasingly, high-grade aggregate for road construction is available only at greater distances, increasing the associated economic and environmental cost impacts associated with the longer haulage distances versus using recycled aggregate.
