Crush-It Green (CIG) is a private company created in 2019, when the two partners took over an existing recycling and production facility that has been in operation since 2016.

With the environment becoming an increasingly popular topic, recycling construction materials are more important than ever, reducing the industry’s carbon footprint.

The focus of the facility is to provide a tipping facility for construction material/aggregate such as stone, soil and masonry items obtained from demolished structures and building rubble. This material is then processed and used in the production of sub-base fill material such as G5, G6, G7, G8, Building Sand, and Topsoil.

The material is brought in by various customers and transporters, which is tipped and the material is then processed or recycled to produce the products, which is then sold back into the construction industry.

Global GreenTag Certification is a world first, third party, green building product rating system underpinned by rigorous scientific and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Health, Ecotoxicity, Greenhouse Gas Emission and Biodiversity assessment processes. It’s advanced, robust ‘beyond LCA’ certification methodology is independently verified as an ISO 14024 compliant Type 1 Eco label.

Global GreenTag is the largest certification system in South Africa and one of the largest globally.

Aggregates are granular materials typically used in construction work. This includes materials such as sand, gravel, stone, concrete and bricks.

As the world continues to grow and urbanise at a fast rate, we find ourselves with the moral responsibility of trying to sustain the existing environment. To achieve this rate of rapid urbanisation, every year we see smaller structures being demolished to make way for newer and bigger construction.

In the past, the leftover aggregate from demolition and construction sites would end up in landfills, but using this old aggregate is now regarded as being beneficial for a number of reasons. The term ‘Recycled Aggregates’ refers to the reprocessed materials that have previously been used in construction. Reprocessing involves activities such as crushing, mixing, or grading aggregate to meet the required specifications.

Cost Saving

Making use of recycled aggregates over virgin materials can save money as they can be less expensive to produce.
If recycled materials are available locally then this can reduce the cost of transporting the aggregates
Producing recycled aggregate for resale is more cost-effective than sending un-wanted materials to landfill and incurring additional costs.

Eco-Friendly

Recycled Aggregate is regarded to be a ‘green’ construction material.
Using recycled aggregate reduces the amount of virgin aggregates which are created and therefore means less excavation of natural resources, and the potential depletion thereof.
There is increasing pressure on landfill capacity, and pressure on construction sites to divert waste away from landfill to meet sustainability targets.
Less CO2 emissions than the mining of virgin aggregates (fuel use, travel, etc)

Versatile

Recycled aggregates can be used for various different functions, suitable for use with construction projects, landscaping and in home improvement applications.

Crushing of Recycled Material

The simple process involves crushing the material into specified size and quality (usually of size 20 mm – 50 mm).

Removal of Contaminants

Contaminants like reinforcing steel, foundation materials, asphalt, plastic, wood and other organic materials, etc. are removed. It can be achieved by many methods including screening, manual picking, using electromagnets, etc

Testimonials

Bamboo Rock Construction has been dealing with SandCo, now Crush It Green, for the past 3 years, and has made use of their disposal facilities for spoil material generated from our various projects.

We have also made use of their recycled material for engineered fill on our various projects which has been satisfactory to date. All material classifications and on-site test results have conformed to the required specifications.

The Meadowdale operation is a well-run establishment with quick turn-around times with regards to the loading/offloading of trucks.

The quality control for the generating of recycled material is of high standard with the continuous removal of any unwanted contaminant and safe disposal thereof.

We commend Crush It Green for their efforts in recycling material and contributing to a cleaner environment.
