Use of Recycled Materials in Flatwork Concrete - Bellingham, WA
The City of Bellingham Public Works Department has finalized specifications for concrete flatwork construction that incorporate waste products such as porcelain, concrete rubble and other waste stone products as screened coarse aggregate for flatwork concrete mixes. These mix designs have been vetted by the regional concrete suppliers and are now commonplace in City public street projects. This use of recycled materials helps decrease waste materials entering landfills, decreases resource extraction, and indirectly should help to decrease the costs to remove waste concrete from construction projects, resulting in more cost effective, environmentally friendly projects.
