C&D Debris Recycling

State government has helped fuel the recycling movement. Last year, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) spent about $677 million on recycled materials-purchases that ranged from fly ash to crushed concrete and recycled steel. Doing so diverted 2.5 million tons of refuse from landfills across the state. The crushed concrete alone saved the agency more than $1.2 million.
