Georgetown Recycling accepts non-hazardous (clean*), construction and demolition (C&D) materials. Construction and demolition (C&D) materials, as described by the EPA, consist of the debris generated during the construction, renovation, and demolition of buildings, roads, and bridges. C&D materials often contain bulky, heavy materials.
*CLEAN means no wire mesh, rebar, metal or brick. Any load that is represented to be CLEAN and free of wire or rebar and is NOT will incur a fee. Dumping of hazardous or illegal waste is prohibited and penalty will include all applicable county, state and federal laws. Cost could include legal fees, cleanup and disposal.
Georgetown Recycling specializes in the disposal of:
As part of the FHWA (Federal Highway Administration) recycled materials policy, the FHWA actively promotes asphalt pavement recycling and technology.
Environmental stewardship is designated as a major focus area of the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) strategic plan. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), environmental stewardship is the responsibility for environmental quality shared by all those whose actions affect the environment. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) supports and promotes the use of recycled highway materials in pavement construction in an effort to preserve the natural environment, reduce waste, and provide a cost effective material for constructing highways. In fact, the primary objective is to encourage the use of recycled materials in the construction of highways to the maximum economical and practical extent possible with equal or improved performance.

Using used brick on a construction project is an environmentally friendly building strategy. First and foremost you'll be using a recycled material, minimizing the need for new production and all the environmental hazards that come along with it. From a mining and production standpoint, even new brick is one of the most low impact materials to pull out of the earth as clay mining is relatively eco-friendly enterprise. And, as mentioned before, brick is an excellent insulator, saving the homeowner on heating and cooling costs wherever it's used. Add to these benefits the antique look and character that comes from building with used brick and it's clear why many homeowners are choosing salvaged brick for their building needs.

Concrete recycling is becoming an increasingly popular way to utilize aggregate left behind when structures or roadways are demolished. In the past, this rubble was disposed of in landfills, but with more attention being paid to environmental concerns, concrete recycling allows reuse of the rubble while also keeping construction costs down. Did you know that 140 million tons of concrete are recycled each year in the United States alone. (Source: CDRecycling.org)
Gravel is rock that is of a certain particle size range. In geology, gravel is any loose rock that is larger than two millimeters (mm) (about 1/12 an inch) in its longest dimension but no more than 63 millimeters (about 2.5 inches). The natural erosion of larger rocks has led to the formation of many gravel deposits. In addition, gravel is now produced by crushing rocks mechanically.
Georgetown Recycling also supplies the highest quality ‘Processed’ and Reprocessed’:
Gravel is an important commercial product, used in various applications. Many roadways are surfaced with gravel, especially in rural areas where there is little traffic. It may also be used as an aggregate in concrete. Globally, far more roads are surfaced with gravel than with concrete or tarmac. Gravel is also used for aesthetic purposes, to enhance the appearance of gardens.
Fill dirt is usually subsoil (soil from beneath the top soil) and underlying soil parent material which has little soil organic matter or biological activity. Fill dirt is taken from a location where soil is being removed as a part of leveling an area for construction; it may also contain sand, rocks, and stones, as well as earth. A common use of fill dirt is in highway maintenance to build up the shoulders of highways so that the ground on either side of the pavement is at the same level as the pavement itself and that the highway shoulders are sufficiently wide as to allow vehicles room to pull off of the highway if needed. A second common use of fill dirt is to fill in a low lying construction site to raise the level of the building foundation in order to reduce the chances of flooding.
Loam is a popular soil medium that is commonly used for gardening, potted plants and even large-scale farming. It provides good aeration of the soil and plenty of nutrients for plants. Loam is a versatile medium that can be adjusted to suit most plants and garden beds. It is easy to work with even when damp, and does not clump or thicken easily.
Stone materials as described above
Stone products are used in a variety of applications; for construction aggregates, landscape and architectural applications.
