70mm Recycled Concrete Cobble

Demolished concrete is a valuable resource material that can be suitably recycled back into various construction materials. Using recycled
concrete in your next construction project eliminates the need for demolished concrete being disposed of at council land fill sites, which
assists in protecting the environment from further degradation.
