Recycling Materials into Pavement

Alpine Waste & Recycling, a plant in Denver has announced their creation of an environmentally friendly porous pavement.      

Utilizing a single conveyor process, the plant recycles cardboard and paper products, glass fragments, plastic, and metals, to create an attractive material for paving.
Alpine recently paved their own parking lot in the recycled material, which is called FilterPave.

Alpine has listed the following features and benefits of their new pavement material.

  • Cooler than traditional concrete
  • Effective filtration of storm water and hydrocarbons (motor oil, etc)
  • Reduced need for storm water retention / detention ponds mean lowered costs
  • Attractive in appearance.
