Asphalt is GREEN

Go Green with Asphalt

100% Recyclable — Recycling asphalt saves U.S. taxpayers over $300 million each year — not to mention the savings to our environment. When in need of repair, asphalt can be milled and resurfaced using recycled materials. In fact, it is the most recycled material in America.

Because asphalt is a renewable, sustainable material, it is environmentally friendly. What may surprise some is that asphalt fits very well into livable communities — places where people have multiple transportation options:

  • Buses run on asphalt pavements
  • Asphalt underlayments help high-speed trains stay on track
  • Asphalt can keep bicycles and pedestrians out of the mud
  • Porous asphalt can be used to manage storm water
