How Recycling Concrete began

 The process known as recycling should be regarded as making a contribution to the present and future environment of our planet. Although significant progress and education have been made as to why concrete recycling in Sacramento is an integral part of our lives, there are still the skeptics out there who either believe it doesn’t affect them, or those motivated by greed and self-interest.

However, recycling is not a new concept and its basics date back to when the ancient Egyptians built their pyramids. The material they used was a form of concrete constructed by mixing gypsum and lime for mortar and with their bricks made from mud and straw. 

Modern concrete structures are not only durable but like those of ancient Egypt can be demolished and regenerated by Concrete recycling Sacramento when their usefulness ends. All construction and demolition sites have rubble they need to dispose of and the process of dumping them in landfills requires enormous amounts of space and is costly!

The materials used for building purposes today are bulky and long-lasting, and generally detrimental to our environment and the atmosphere. This is emphasized by the effects of transporting the rubble, compared to onsite concrete recycling in Sacramento which also impacts on the environment and contractors profit margins. Fortunately, various states in the USA now forbid the dumping of construction waste materials.

Building rubble from demolished homes, pavements, and roads can be turned into crushed new aggregate materials on-site with the modern equipment used by concrete recycling in Sacramento. The highly effective mobile equipment crushes, grades, and decontaminates the rubble. An important aspect of the results gained by the process is that the recycled aggregates, produce concrete that is stronger than traditional, new concrete, thereby making it a preferred material for any new construction, pavements or roads, and which is more sustainable.
