Reduce, Re-use, Upcycle!
There is no denying that times are changing. Everywhere around us we see companies making an effort to reduce their carbon footprint. At Cooper Contracting, we have found a unique way to use the resources we have to go about making a difference in our little corner of the world.
Cooper Contracting to the rescue!
When a side is scheduled for demolition, you can rest assured that something new is on it’s way in. But what happens with the materials used to build the structure that is being demolished? Traditionally, once they’ve been picked over for scrap, most of the leftover materials end up in landfills. We didn’t like that too much.
We have come up with a way to utilize our unique skillset, and reuse scrapped concrete and asphalt. We have a crusher, so we’ve decided to put it to work grinding up old asphalt and concrete so that it can become a new sidewalk, foundation, or even someone’s new driveway!
“Traditionally, once [leftover materials] have been picked over for scrap, most of the leftover materials end up in landfills. We didn’t like that too much.”
Make a difference, once driveway at a time.
Wondering how you can make an impact? It’s as simple as purchasing refurbished concrete/asphalt from Cooper Contracting instead of mixing up new concrete for your next project. Whether you are a contractor planning a new construction project, or a homeowner needing to upgrade your driveway, purchasing your concrete from Cooper Contracting can help us make the world a better place.
