Anderson, SC -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/04/2018 -- Pickens Construction recently shared some benefits of using recycled asphalt, as opposed to new asphalt. According to the company, this public service announcement was made in the interest of both consumers and the environment.

Pickens Construction stated that, regarding the environment, recycled asphalt does not use up new raw materials. The company indicated that this is highly beneficial to environmental conservation efforts. The company also mentioned that anyone who is interested is able to recycle their own asphalt. According to Pickens Construction, chunks of old asphalt can be milled, recycled, and reused. The company stated that this is both a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution.

Pickens Construction shared an additional benefit of recycled asphalt. According to Pickens Construction, recycled asphalt offers cost-savings to those in the construction industry. The company indicated that this cost-savings is due to the fact that recycled asphalt costs far less money to produce than new asphalt. The company further clarified this statement by mentioning that, even though recycled asphalt is cheaper than new asphalt, the quality of the material is not compromised in any way. Pickens stated that recycled asphalt does have the durability and performance of new asphalt.
