Concrete & Wood Recycling
Mercer Group International recycles concrete, asphalt, brick, and wood. Our concrete crusher produces ¾ clean stone and 1 ½” blend stone used for road base, fill, and other suitable applications. We single grind our wood materials which are sold to manufacturers of mulch products.
Our blend product is used mostly for road based aggregates as foundation for roadway pavement, residential slab and foundation; commercial slab and foundation; and concrete paving per aggregate approval. Recycled concrete can also be used as a foundation to lay underground utilities.
Landscapers also use it for soil stabilization, mounding, retaining walls, waterfalls, and more.
In the fast-paced construction industry, the demand for new buildings increases debris and discarded materials. Concrete and wood are the two most common things you’ll find at a construction site. These are two of the most essential building blocks of our urban landscapes and the most significant contributors to construction waste.
However, with a growing emphasis on green living, the spotlight is now turning towards concrete and wood recycling as a crucial step in responsible construction and waste management.
This is where Horizon Disposals come in. We help collect and repurpose construction debris and discarded wood. Speak with our customer rep to discuss your yard debris, demolition, or construction waste options.
Acceptable Concrete and Wood Materials
Our licensed recycling facility in Trenton, NJ, accepts various construction materials. We can process concrete, asphalt, wood, brick, and blocks. Our recycling technology helps produce concrete aggregates, which can be used in foundations, roads, pavement, etc.
Helping You Eco-friendly Dispose of Concrete and Wood
Construction and demolition sites generate massive amounts of waste. The environmental impact of sending these materials to landfills is considerable, contributing to pollution and resource depletion.
The construction industry is increasingly adopting recycling practices to reduce environmental impact. Horizon Disposal Services strives to provide builders, homeowners, and business owners with reliable equipment.
Straightforward Procedure for Concrete Recycling
Concrete recycling involves collecting discarded concrete from construction sites and processing it to produce recycled aggregates. Typically, we crush the original concrete into smaller pieces and screen them to remove impurities. These recycled aggregates can replace the traditional aggregates in new concrete mixes.
The procedure for recycling concrete conserves natural resources and reduces the energy required for concrete production. Reusing concrete minimizes reliance on raw materials, such as gravel and sand, leading to an eco-friendly construction cycle.
Repurposing Discarded Wood
Similarly to concrete, discarded wood from construction sites will often end up in landfills. Causing pollution and danger to the environment. Recycling wood presents an opportunity to use a valuable resource that would otherwise go to waste.
Recycled wood can be used for various projects, such as building materials or furniture. The process typically involves collecting discarded wood, sorting it based on its quality, and then processing it to remove contaminants.
Once cleaned and treated, we can recycle wood into new sustainable products that maintain the durability and appeal of the original material.
Benefits of Concrete and Wood Recycling
There are many benefits to recycling concrete and wood. First, it dramatically reduces the environmental impact caused by the extraction of raw materials. Reusing discarded materials conserves natural resources and decreases the energy required for manufacturing new products.
Secondly, recycling concrete and wood helps minimize the amount of waste sent to landfills, reducing the harm to land, water, and air pollution. This, in turn, contributes to the overall health of our environment and ecosystems.
Contributing to a Future of Sustainable Construction
Concrete and wood recycling represent essential steps towards building a greener and more sustainable future. Integrating these practices into construction projects contributes to environmental conservation and promotes a circular economy where materials are reused and repurposed.
