- Look for new ways to improve the efficiency of our processes and equipment in an effort to conserve energy, reduce waste and lessen our environmental impact.
- Use the latest techniques such as porous asphalt pavement whenever possible to reduce pollution in storm water runoff.
- Follow industry best practices for pollution prevention and waste minimization.
- Meet or exceed applicable federal and state environmental laws and regulations.
DID YOU KNOW?
- Asphalt materials are 100% recyclable.
- More than 80-million tons are recycled every year in the U.S.
- That's 80-million tons that do not go to landfills every year.
- Asphalt pavement recycling is more cost effective than using only virgin or new materials.
- Recycled asphalt pavement is indistinguishable from new asphalt pavement and in most cases actually provides a stronger surface.
- Asphalt pavement can be cold milled and recycled which saves costly readjustment of manholes, curbs and sewer drains when rehabilitating urban streets.
- Asphalt provides a smoother road surface, maximizing tire contact for safer driving and reducing wear and tear on vehicles.
- Asphalt's smoother surface provides measurable fuel savings to the driving public when compared to concrete roadways.
- Asphalt maintenance costs are considerably lower than concrete.
- Asphalt recycling not only conserves our precious natural resources and speeds construction, it also saves American taxpayers more than $300-million a year.
