Bill Kelsall makes one of his five deliveries of recycled concrete to Bragg Hill today. This aggregate consisting of ground up concrete taken from old buildings or bridges makes an ideal foundation for the future driveway. The recycled concrete is coated and crushed to a equivalent of 2A modified—a standard size in the stone business. The blend of material consists of the heavy aggregate mixed with screenings or stone dust.
Each of Bill Kelsall’s trucks holds around 12 cubic yards or 20 tons. Today he distributed 100 tons of this recycled concrete on the newly excavated driveway. The substrate will also serve to stabilize the soil to prevent erosion.
