  • Abstract:
    Reducing waste and reusing materials is now a part of the everyday fabric of life. Recycling glass, paper, and plastic is an activity in many households and businesses. Similarly, the transportation sector generates huge quantities of concrete, asphalt, rubber, steel, and glass. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is actively engaged in technical research to facilitate use of recycled materials. But an equally important and less researched aspect of recycling relates to the business of using these materials. In this project, University of Florida researchers conducted a series of four tasks to address this, including costs of recycled materials, their availability, and the readiness of private sector contractors to use these materials.
