This Workshop will address the use of recycled materials in roadways. The value of roadways is well known, often one of the most significant investments an agency owns. Recycling of roadway materials should always be considered when maintaining, rehabilitating or building new roadways. There are numerous techniques and standards that are well-established, and each approach should be considered before selecting the most appropriate for a specific project.

Maybe more importantly there are many nontraditional waste or by-product materials that have found their way into use in roadways. Recycled Tire Rubber has a well-established role in asphalt paving. Plastic, Crushed Portland Cement Concrete, Contaminated Soils, Fly-Ash, Slag, Paper and many other Industrial by-products and Post Consumer materials have found practical uses in paving.

This Workshop aims to explain what works and why. The need to divert these materials from landfills or being dumped into the environment is of great importance to all of us.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the recycled materials, processes and techniques currently in use.
  • Explore the use of recycled materials used in maintenance, rehabilitation and new construction.
  • Enhance your techniques to divert waste from landfills into roadways to improve the quality of pavements.
  • Identify and solve common production and construction issues when using recycled materials
