Recycled Crushed Concrete
Drop Off Your Clean Concrete Rubble
If you have clean concrete rubble from a demolition project and need to dispose of the material, Liberty’s Recycle Yards will take the concrete for free. Just bring your clean concrete removal material to one of our two locations located in Des Moines and Van Meter during our extended business hours and dump your material free of charge. We will save you the expense of dumping at a landfill and you will help the environment by contributing material that will be recycled into a reusable aggregate product.
To recycle the material, Liberty Ready Mix takes the concrete rubble material and crushes it down to aggregate materials that can be used on construction projects as fill material along with subbase material placed under new concrete slabs. This practice of recycling concrete is healthier for the environment by keeping the material out of landfills. Additionally, the recycled aggregate can be a substitute for natural crushed limestone and gravel materials, helping save the irreplaceable natural aggregate resources for future generations.
Acceptable Concrete Rubble
While we want to recycle and reuse as much concrete rubble as possible, our recycling facilities do have some guidelines on the types and condition of the concrete that are acceptable for recycling. Material that is acceptable must meet the following:
- Clean, broken concrete free of excessive dirt or mud
- No asphalt material will be accepted
- No concrete cinder blocks or bricks will be accepted
- No landscaping block will be accepted
