Recycled road asphalt is often used to repair paved surfaces. Learn how this material can be used to support a paving project.
Recycled asphalt consists of crushed pavement materials. Asphalt, pea gravel, and rock fragments are often used to pave roadways. As a roadway begins to show signs of deterioration, the surface layers are often ripped up and replaced. Instead of disposing of the old layers of pavement, some contractors use a recycling process to break down old asphalt and make it suited for future use.
