Construction Recycling The City of Columbus strives to ensure reusable materials are salvaged from demolition and reused in construction projects.  A few examples of this effort include: 

• The Department of Public Service recycles asphalt from street-resurfacing projects to repair berms and shoulders, an acceptable practice according to city engineering standards.  

• The Department of Recreation and Parks has used recycled, crushed concrete as base material in the construction of trails.  Other examples of recycling in the department include reuse of sandstone blocks from the Broad Street bridge and Wolfe Park dam removal project to construct retaining walls.  Additionally, an entire bridge was relocated for use along the Alum Creek Greenway Trail. 

• City code, section 4113.79 requires that 25% of demolition debris be recycled.
