Recycled Content

To avoid the environmental consequences of extracting and processing virgin materials by using recycled and reclaimed materials.

  • Most products available with recycled content
  • Reduced virgin cement consumption in select products
  • Grout in concrete masonry can contain substantial percentage of SCM

  Concrete unit masonry includes low impact CarbonKind CMU by Angelus Block. Learn more here.

Angelus Block offers from select locations CMU, pavers, and SRW units with postconsumer / preconsumer recycled content blends (crushed reclaimed and waste product as aggregate replacement). Many stock items contain recycled material.¹ The result is a corresponding reduction in consumption of virgin aggregates.

Please see next - MR: Recycled Content (2) for FLY ASH IN MASONRY GROUT as a substantial opportunity for recycled content.

¹ Please confer with your representative for current availability, content, and locations. Availability, percentages, and type of recycled content are subject to change. Recycled aggregates are inherently variable; the higher the recycled content, the greater the potential for color and texture variation. Please contact us to discuss your needs.
