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

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.
