Asphalt is the most recycled material in the world, exceeding even aluminum. All new asphalt has anywhere from 15% to 20% crushed, recycled asphalt blended into the new mix. Although virgin material can be purchased, most experts recommend against its use in installation projects, unless it’s being used on the bottom of multiple lifts.
Recycled asphalt can also be used as an inexpensive driveway application. However, you need to exercise caution, because recycled asphalt has rubber, oil, and line paint mixed together, and can be tracked into your home and vehicle.
