-20mm Recycled Blended Base
Demolished concrete, brick, roof tiles, ceramic tiles, road base and asphalt are a valuable resource material that can be suitably recycled and blended back into various construction materials. Using recycled Construction & Demolition materials in your next construction project eliminates the need for demolished C & D waste being disposed of at council land fill sites, which assists in protecting the environment from further degradation.
-20mm recycled blended base can be supplied to;
- Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia (NSW) - IPWEA Class R1 & R2 as guided by the "Specification for Supply of Recycled Materials for Pavements, Earthworks and Drainage" Issue No. 3.0 April 2010.
