What is Crushed Concrete?

Crushed Concrete is commonly known as a ‘Recycled Aggregate’ or ‘Recycled Concrete’, and can be used across a broad range of residential and commercial applications. Crushed Concrete has been popularised amidst growing sustainability trends and continues to inspire demand through its unique properties.

Structures are constantly being demolished or renovated and as such, concrete recycling has become increasingly common - providing crushed concrete as a byproduct. Crushed Concrete is made by collecting concrete aggregate from demolition sites which is then subjected to a multitude of crushing processes.

Despite many myths and misconceptions - crushed concrete acts as a leading aggregate and provides clear benefits across many diverse projects. If you are seeking further information on crushed concrete or crushed concrete supply, you can contact our quarry supply professionals at 1300 291 130.

Crushed concrete is commonly used in place of other aggregates with a variety of applications across landscaping, construction, and development projects.

The most common uses for crushed concrete include:

  • Site stabilisation
  • Road base
  • Backfill material
  • Garden bed development
  • Pathway development
  • Driveway base layer

  • Erosion prevention

Benefits of Crushed Concrete

Unlike other aggregates, crushed concrete is sourced from recycled materials and holds a multitude of benefits over other alternatives. Not only does crushed concrete represent positive environmental factors, it also leads most aggregates in sustainability, strength and durability. Crushed concrete acts as a vital asset across many industries and for many projects is the perfect synergy between price, quality, and sustainability.

With an increasing pressure for companies to become socially responsible and implement ‘CSR’ approaches - crushed concrete has become an ideal choice for projects wishing to reduce carbon footprints, sustain the environment, and help benefit the wider community. Concrete makes up a considerable portion of landfills so the use of crushed concrete aids in the reduction of landfill materials and saves energy associated with aggregate mining and new aggregate transportation.

The use of crushed concrete also provides functional benefits over other aggregates given its unique properties. Crushed concrete can weigh up to 15% lighter than virgin material, holds better absorption properties, and can prove to be more durable compared to other virgin aggregates.

These are some of the most common benefits of crushed concrete:

  • Saves landfill space
  • Conserves natural resources
  • Reduces carbon footprint
  • Reduces excessive transport expenses
  • Great absorption properties
  • Great shrinkage properties
