DEEP: Construction and Demolition Aggregate Recycling Facilities

Aggregate Processing Facilities

 
{Pile of Aggregate with Dozer} This page is intended to help contractors identify processing facilities that accept asphalt, brick, and concrete (ABC) resulting from the construction and demolition of buildings, highways, and bridges. 


Volume Reduction Plants
 
The Connecticut DEEP maintains a list of permitted Construction & Demolition Processing Facilities, otherwise known as Volume Reduction Plants (VRPs).  Some of these plants accept asphalt, brick and concrete, but may also accept other types of solid waste typically generated at construction and demolition (C&D) sites such as wood, gypsum wallboard, furniture and rugs.  Some VRP's simply transfer materials to a disposal site, while others perform various degrees of separation and processing before disposing and/or recycling.  Before delivering anything to these facilities, it is advisable to call ahead and confirm that they will accept the quantity and type of materials that you want to deliver.  Most C&D processing facilities in Connecticut recover none to very little materials for recycling.  If you are seeking LEED certification or want to ensure your materials are being recovered for recycling, please contact the facility directly.


Other ABC Processing Resources
 
You can also find facilities that process asphalt, brick and concrete (ABC) by using the following resources:
 
The Blue Book Building and Construction Network  This is an on-line "book" that includes over a million listings and 560 categories pertinent to the building and construction industries.  The database is searchable by keyword, region and classification.  The Keywords that returned the most results for the Connecticut region were "aggregate"  and "recycling" .  Try other keywords suitable to your needs.  Scroll to the bottom of the search results for next pages.  The book is also available in printed format to qualified companies by using the on-line request form.
 
Construction Materials Recycling Association  Promotes the safe and economically feasible recycling of the more than 325 million tons of recoverable construction and demolition (C&D) materials that are generated in the United States annually.  Their Find a Recycler page allows you to search their members by state.
 
Yellow Pages  An on-line version of the Yellow Pages.  Search for the keywords such as Aggregate Recycling; Asphalt Reclaiming; Demolition Contractors; Recycling Centers & Services; Sand & Gravel; and Stone Crushed.  Search the same categories in the printed version of the Yellow Pages or Yellow Book.
