Why Recycle Hard Core, Brick and Concrete?
Approximately 275 million tonnes of aggregates are used each year in the UK as raw construction materials and of this around 70 million tonnes are already derived from recycled or secondary sources.
The UK is a leading user of these materials in Europe and can be proud of the fact that 25% of UK aggregate demand is met with these more sustainable resources.

How the Hard Core, Stone Brick and Concrete is Recycled?
Hard Core, Stone, Brick and Concrete (Mixed Construction)
Construction waste recycling is the separation and recycling of recoverable waste materials generated during construction and re-modelling. Packaging, new material scraps and old materials and debris all constitute potentially recoverable materials. In renovation, appliances, masonry materials, doors and windows are recyclable.
Some materials can be recycled directly into the same product for re-use. Others can be reconstituted into other usable products. The most important step for recycling of construction waste is on-site separation. Initially, this will take some extra effort and training of construction personnel. Once separation habits are established, on-site separation is assisted by suitable waste management containers being labelled and data recorded. RTS waste offer a comprehensive service to ensure a professional service is provided to all construction sites including RECYCLED REPORTS and SWMP’s
Once the materials are received at one of our three Waste Transfer Stations and processed through a MRF and concrete crusher. This removes debris and crushes the hard construction materials into the finished product of aggregate which is stockpiled and stored ready for reuse and recycled products
