Summit Materials is committed to sustainability throughout all lines of business, including services. Our various locations used approximately 780,000 tons of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) and recycled asphalt shingles (RAS) in 2017. In addition to using RAP and RAS to reduce the amount of virgin materials used, Summit Materials reuses nearly 400,000 tons of recycled concrete on an annual basis. Furthermore, Summit reduces its energy consumption at its cement plant by more than 30% by operating a hazardous waste disposal site at our operating company, Continental Cement Company (CCC) CCC, through its subsidiary, Green America Recycling (GAR). GAR is one of a handful of companies that is licensed to burn hazardous materials in the United States. This process is a sustainable and safe way to dispose of these chemicals so that they do not end up in landfills and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
