Asphalt is 100% recyclable. We use recycled asphalt in our mixes and produce zero waste from our plants. Asphalt has the capability to flex in our climate to accommodate for freezing and thawing, which will increase the life of the pavement.  We will keep you on schedule despite the weather with our Soil Stabilization techniques.
