This video describes the challenge of a main source of construction waste: used asphalt. The recycled asphalt paving pilot showcases a collaborative effort to demonstrate the opportunity of recycling reclaimed asphalt to both divert waste, and offset emissions. A strong leadership initiative across local government and industry, this project demonstrates the significant benefits of paving the way for circular economy principles within the built environment.
This video provides an overview of a pilot application of 40% recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) on a high volume arterial road in Richmond, BC. The project is believed to be the first such application on a public road in Canada. In the video, Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie invites cities across Canada to participate in creating solutions to managing asphalt waste through similar RAP applications.
This workshop gathered expert speakers to provide key insight on scaling the use of recycled asphalt in Canada. Watch the recording to learn about the benefits of recycled asphalt pavement, hear from the leads of the City of Richmond pilot project and Recycled Asphalt Pavement Toolkit, and learn how to initiate RAP projects in your area and accelerate RAP utilization across the country.
Get in touch if you’d like to share your project. Interested to discuss how you can accelerate the use of recycled asphalt in your jurisdiction? We would love to hear from you.
