The New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) offers quality Recycled Concrete Aggregate (RCA) to private industry and community developments from its yard in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Parties interested in obtaining RCA must send trucks to Sunset Park where DOT will load trucks with RCA at no cost.
DOT produces RCA from recycling, screening and crushing waste concrete from its city-wide Sidewalk Program. The RCA is ¾” minus, meets New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC)’s restricted residential soil standard and has a Beneficial Use Determination from DEC’s Division of Materials Management per 6 NYCRR Part 360.12(c)(3)(viii).
The RCA is a suitable sub-base material beneath a road or sidewalk. It has been used successfully as a load-bearing material to support a crane at the bottom of a construction site and is suitable for raising grades and filling in behind foundations.
Parties interested in obtaining RCA should contact OER
