Brick and concrete are recyclable materials reused in several ways. If you’re looking for a recycling facility to take care of your brick, block, and concrete waste, you’ve come to the right place. Richard S. Burns & Company is a leading provider of recycling services in Bensalem, PA.

Here we discuss four things you must check before choosing a recycling company and tips on choosing the proper recycling facility for your business.

  1. The Company’s Licensing and Insurance

Recycling is a heavily regulated industry. Make sure the company you’re considering is properly licensed and insured. In Philadelphia, a recycling company should be accredited by the Philadelphia Recycling Office.

The company should have insurance to cover any damages which may occur during the recycling process. It will protect customers in case something goes wrong.

They should also be members of organizations like the National Recycling Coalition or the Solid Waste Association of North America. These memberships show a commitment to the industry and its standards.

  1. Types of Recycling Services Offered

Brick, block, and concrete are all recyclable materials. However, not all recycling facilities are created equal. When searching for a facility to recycle your brick, block, or concrete waste, it’s essential to check what types of recycling services they offer.

For example, brick recycling involves crushing the brick into smaller pieces and then using it as aggregate in construction projects. On the other hand, block recycling usually entails breaking down the blocks into smaller pieces used as fill material.

As for concrete recycling, this process involves crushing the concrete into small pieces used as gravel or aggregate in construction projects.

  1. The Company’s Experience in the Industry

It is crucial to find a  company with significant industry experience. It will ensure they have the knowledge and expertise to recycle your materials properly. A company with less experience may not know how to properly recycle certain materials, which could send waste to a landfill instead of being recycled.

You should read customer reviews to get information like:

-How long has the company been in business

-What types of materials have they experience in recycling

-The level of customer service they provide

  1. Prices and Terms

Lastly, you want to be sure the company you choose offers reasonable prices and terms. Some companies will have a minimum order requirement, while others may charge by the ton. Ensure to ask about hidden fees or surcharges, so you should budget accordingly. For example,  some companies may charge a fuel surcharge or an environmental fee.

Final Note

Brick, block, and concrete recycling are essential for any construction company. It’s important to do your research to find a facility which meets your needs and is in compliance with regulations.
