We’ve all been told the importance of recycling. “Reduce, reuse, recycle” is a phrase we’ve heard all our lives. The importance of waste reduction lies in every direction. Ultimately, nobody wants to live in a high pollution environment or suffer the effects of climate change. There are economic, environmental, and equitable advantages to being a change agent for recycling initiatives.

Small’s Sand & Gravel: 10229 Killduff Road CCAP® Patch Project
Pavement preservation is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to extend the life of roadways which helps public funding go further. A pavement preservation strategy is proven to produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions, expend less energy, and give faster application times than the alternative conventional approach, in addition to being cost-effective.
Lending Both Time and Expertise to Help Gleaners Food Bank
Gleaners is making an important difference for Hoosiers across the 21 counties they serve. During the challenging times we’ve all experienced the last few years, Gleaners has seen an amazing outpouring of support from our community. Every volunteer is an invaluable part of their fight against hunger.
Members of our Asphalt Materials team were on site at the Indianapolis Gleaners location on Waldemere Avenue on the 13th of September. The team helped package over 100 orders, which included enough for nearly 6000 meals.
September 11th through the 17th is National Driver Appreciation week; a time dedicated to showing our respect and gratitude to all professional truck drivers for the hard work they do.
We ask that everyone takes a moment to recognize the men and women on whom we depend on to deliver our food, medical supplies, goods and materials that keep America running.
When you see a truck driver, take the time to say thanks!
On August 18th, a Chip Seal project took place in Gaston, Indiana. This project was completed by the Delaware County Highway Department. Chip seals are used to prevent water intrusion into a pavement and create a high friction surface for safety. Chip seal emulsions can be polymer modified to improve aggregate retention and provide for a quicker return to traffic.
Improving the resilience of infrastructure helps advance a more sustainable transportation network.

An Economic Alternative to Full Reconstruction
Cold Constructed Asphalt Pavement (CCAP®) is a cold mix asphalt that is created by combining aggregate and a chemically modified asphalt and mixing the two ingredients at ambient temperature. The cold mix may be stockpiled for weeks to a few months and then placed using a paver for road repair such as patching potholes or adding a new layer to low-volume roads. A chip seal is often placed over the cold mix.
This week, Thursday, August 25, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. EDT Women of Asphalt is hosting its very first August virtual wine mixer.
One of the organization’s goals is to give more women in the asphalt industry a place to feel connected, supported, and provide networking opportunities within the industry as they grow their careers.
