The supply for aggregate materials is not endless, and Delta Sand & Gravel believes that it is our responsibility to cultivate an active recycling culture, as well as to encourage the environmental responsibility of aggregate material producers everywhere. Delta offers recycled aggregate products so that our customers may meet LEED and sustainable building standards.
Repurposing demolition debris
By repurposing demolition debris, we can use the resources that we have already invested in infrastructure to extend the life of each aggregate product and decrease our impact on the environment. We recycle many products at our mining facility in our dedication to reducing waste, protecting Lane County’s natural resources and increasing the supply of building aggregates. We also use many of these same products in our reclamation process.
The products we recycle and reclaim include:
- Asphaltic concrete
- Building demolition
- Clearing and grubbing debris
Yes, we take tires!
In 2017, Delta purchased tire equipment to extend our recycling services to Lane County businesses and residents seeking environmentally friendly alternatives to trashing old tires. Reach out to us for pricing.
Unfortunately, we are not yet equipped to reclaim and recycle all waste products. Our DEQ-approved site is designed for construction demolition only and some products are not permitted. If you want to recycle treated wood, paint and tar cans, plastic or household garbage, appliances, fixtures, electronics, furniture, carpet, flooring or asbestos [friable], then visit The City of Eugene’s website. There, you will find more information about additional recycling resources in and around Lane County.
An environmentally conscious community
We are proud to be one of many construction and mining companies in Eugene that take recycling and environmentally friendly practices very seriously. Please join us in congratulating our fellow construction companies who received Oregon’s 2017 Mined Land Reclamation Awards, and be sure to vote for us in 2018!
Delta Sand & Gravel Co. is happy to help provide recycled material for your next project or provide a place for you dispose of your construction demolition. Please call us to learn more about our recycled material offerings, or about which items are accepted in our landfill and reclamation areas.
