Concrete Recycling FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right concrete recycling supplier for your job

1. How do you recycle concrete?

There are multiple crushing and pulverising equipment used for successful concrete recycling. Through large impactors and equipment with jaws, the concrete will first be broken up. Next, it will be run through by a secondary impactor. Finally, it is screened to remove the dirt and other particles, separating the large and small aggregates. In removing these particles, separators or magnets may be used. It is also recommended to use industrial crushing for recycling rather than pulverising. This is because when pulverising, the separation process is more challenging, resulting in contamination from smaller byproducts.

 

2. Where can I dispose of concrete waste?

There are concrete disposal centres where you can dispose of your concrete waste. At these locations, the concrete waste will have to go through the breaking down process. Foreign particles and materials (metals and recyclable materials) will then be removed. The concrete pieces will be sorted according to their size and quality and will be crushed again to be used in aggregate products.

 

3. What is recycled concrete used for?

Recycled concretes can be used for the same purpose as new products. Below are some of the ways that these materials can be reused:

  • Landscape mulch: It can replace gravels or river rocks usually used as ground covers and mulch.
  • Permeable paving for outdoor hard surfaces (walkways, driveways, etc.): If laid correctly, recycled concrete can be used to create a stable and porous traffic surface which rainwater can filter through.
  • Aggregate for mixing fresh concretes.
  • Fill for wire cages: Both decorative and functional, you can use crushed gravel to fill your wire cages for your screen or retaining walls.
  • Building material for oceanic reef habitats: Large pieces of recycled concrete can be put offshore to form foundations for corals to help in building new reefs.
  • Controlling streambank erosion: Similarly, large pieces may also be placed along stream banks and gullies to help control erosion.
  • Base for asphalt paving.
 

4. How much does it cost to dispose of concrete?

If you are a commercial entity wanting to dump your concrete wastes at your local tip, you may be charged with the "new construction and demolition waste levy." This usually costs around $75 per tonne. There will also be additional waste fees that will vary depending on the waste facility. Some facilities offer a clean concrete dump cost of $26 per tonne.
