Over 70 million tons of asphalt are recycled each year in the United States, more than the combined total of glass, paper, plastic, and aluminum recycling. The use of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) in the production of new asphalt products benefits the environment through the conservation of natural resources and reductions in the amount of materials destined for landfills. It can also benefit plant operating budgets by reducing the quantity and cost of raw materials, so it’s a win-win situation for both the environment and for asphalt customers.
HRI, Inc. is committed to using RAP in mix designs at our asphalt plants. During the past few years, we have modified our plants to allow for the use of RAP, and we actively seek out new sources of the material. Every ton of RAP that we can use in our specialized mix designs is a ton saved from waste piles or landfills.
HRI is proud to have all of our asphalt plants and emulsion plants receive NAPA’s Diamond Achievement Commendation for Excellence in Hot Mix Asphalt Plant/Site Operations. This award is given to facilities that exemplify the spirit of quality and excellence in appearance, permitting and regulatory compliance, environmental practices, operations, safety, and community relations. The Williamsport Hot Mix Asphalt Plant has also been awarded NAPA’s Diamond Quality Commendation. This new award focuses on plant practices that result in excellent product quality. HRI is steadfastly working toward our goal of all plants receiving this award.
