What would you like to Recycle?

Asphalt (road)

Asphalt (road)
Asphalt includes aggregate concrete and road material. It is a petroleum based product mixed with crushed stone, sand or gravel to make a compound suitable for streets and roads. Asphalt road surfaces, however, can be recycled onsite, through a heating and relayering process or through transportation to another site.
It is banned from disposal at Hartland depot.

How do I go green?

Consider use of asphalt alternatives if paving your driveway or a parking lot. Permeable pavement, such as paving stones, brick, gravel or stone, decreases storm water runoff, helps keep trees and plants hydrated and prevents contamination of ground and surface water with surface contaminants such as oil.

Used asphalt can be recycled into roads, streets, driveways and other products needing hot mix asphalt.

  • The Environmental Story

    Bitumen, the primary component of asphalt, contains sulphur and heavy metals such as lead, chromium, mercury and arsenic. These chemicals can leach into road runoff water during storms and damage waterways and their inhabitants. Petroleum is also a non-renewable fossil fuel, which damages the ozone layer during extraction and production.
