By Monmouth County Freeholder Tom Arnone
At the last meeting of the Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Board authorized an award of bid for an asphalt recycler for the Department of Public Works and Engineering. This equipment will allow the Divisions of Bridge and Highway to take waste asphalt from construction projects throughout the year and turn it into high quality hot mix, re-using it for road repairs. This will reduce our disposal and operating costs, along with being environmentally friendly. The cost of the recycled material is 75% less than the cost for new material.
Last year the county spent over $150,000.00 for cold mix, base material and disposal of waste material. As an added benefit, every ton of asphalt the county recycles will benefit Freehold Township in the amount received from the State of New Jersey in their tonnage grant.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, Tom Arnone | Tags: Arnone Report, Asbury Park, Asphalt recycling, Business Roundtable, Freehold Township, Grow Monmouth, Grow Monmouth Business Roundtable, Howell, Manalapan, Ocean Township, Sunset Ave Bridge, Tom Arnone, Wall Township | 1 Comment »
