Despite what some might think, asphalt is an eco-friendly material that is highly recyclable. A milling machine is used to grind up your existing pavement, and the asphalt is reused, albeit after some treatment, to pave a new surface. Despite serving a long service life, recycled asphalt offers the same durability and strength as new asphalt, so you do not have to worry about compromising your new pavement’s quality or drive.
By using recycled asphalt, not only will you be doing your part in protecting the natural resources of the planet (asphalt is made from petroleum), but you will also save a lot on raw material costs. Also, depending on the state you are in, you can also earn some tax benefits.
Asphalt millings can be melted in a hot mix asphalt application to pave a new surface or can be used in their existing form as a substitute for gravel to create a more porous surface. Regardless of what you select, recycled asphalt millings are a great option if you can find a professional contractor who has dealt with asphalt milling and paving projects that use recycled asphalt.
