Getting rid of old concrete?
Dakin Natural Soils accepts concrete you’d like to to discard – at no charge to you.
Disposing of concrete can be a hassle, and it certainly isn’t something you want to mix in with your regular trash. Dakin makes concrete disposal easy by taking your old landscaping, driveway, and construction debris off your hands, reducing overall waste and saving you disposal fees.
What are the benefits of recycling concrete?
Many construction projects involve the demolition of concrete foundations, sidewalks, driveways, and other concrete structures. This can leave you with a lot of heavy, dense materials that need to be removed. Bringing your concrete to Dakin is good for the environment as it can be recycled and reused in many ways.
How is concrete recycled?
We recycle concrete through the use of industrial crushing equipment and heavy-duty impactors.
Afterward, the broken-down concrete is run through a secondary impactor, screened to remove dirt and particles, and separated into large and small aggregates. Additional processes and equipment, such as water flotation, separators, and magnets, may also be used to remove specific elements from the crushed concrete.
An alternative method is to pulverize the concrete, but this is not always the best option, as it makes it harder to complete the separation process and may leave more contamination from smaller byproducts. Recycled concrete is used in many of the same ways as you would use new materials, such as gravel, paving materials, and other aggregates.
