Advantages of using recycled aggregates
Recycled aggregates are a great, more environmentally friendly alternative to regular ones. This is because they are made up of by-products from previous construction work or from building material from demolition sites. As well as being a more sustainable choice, there are also other advantages to using this type of aggregate:
One of the main attractions of using recycled aggregates onsite is the price of this material compared to other types. As recycled aggregate is made from recycled material (as opposed to quarry stone for example) the cost is much lower as there is less manufacturing involved. This makes it an extremely competitively priced choice, especially if a large amount of aggregate is needed to complete the works.
Another advantage of using recycled aggregate is its versatility. Depending on the type it can include crushed stone, gravel, sand, recycled brick, recycled asphalt, recycled slag and recycled concrete. This means that it is multi-functional and can be used across many different building projects such as landscaping, construction, roadworks and earthworks.
Finally, recycled aggregate is also a great option due to its reliability. Many companies use this type of aggregate as they know that it will have a long life span and perform just as effectively as other types of aggregate over time. This means that whilst this material is cheaper than other alternatives, the quality and performance of the aggregate is not compromised.
