Concrete Recycling | Northeast Pennsylvania
Here at A+ Enterprises, we recycle several materials whenever we can. Using recycled materials is a great way to help the environment. Not only does it decrease the amount of waste discarded from construction projects but it also preserves many of the resources that go into creating new asphalt, concrete, and other materials. We participate in concrete recycling, which has a number of great benefits for everyone.
THE STEPS TO CONCRETE RECYCLING
Traditionally, old concrete was hauled from construction sites and dumped into landfills. Today, many construction companies opt for concrete recycling. First, we gather up the concrete and send it to a crushing machine. The concrete that is to be crushed has to be uncontaminated. This means that it can’t be mixed with wood, paper, or trash. Metals mixed in with concrete are okay, since a magnet can be used to remove the metals to be melted and repurposed elsewhere. After metals are removed from the clean concrete, each piece is sorted by size. The concrete is fed into the crushing machine, which crushes the concrete into small bits to be used elsewhere. Large chunks of concrete may need to be fed into the crushing machine twice. The fine concrete created by the crushing machine is further tested for cleanliness before it is sent to out to be used as an aggregate, as gravel, as riprap, or as landscaping features.
There are so many benefits to recycling concrete. First, concrete is kept out of landfills, which saves crucial space in landfills that are becoming increasingly overburdened. Reusing old concrete that has be reformed into gravel minimizes the need for gravel mining as well as reduces the pollution created by trucks that would be otherwise hauling fresh gravel from a gravel mine to a work site. Finally, recycling one ton of concrete saves about 1,360 gallons water! We’re glad that we can take part in a process that is so environmentally friendly!

I got a 100% accurate estimate from the owner and he dispatched a crew to clean out my house the next day (!). The guys were professional and very nice and personable, making a tough situation much easier to handle. Moreover, they worked until the job was done way over my expectations. This company has the best prices in our area and they are complete pros. I would recommend them to anyone...don't hesitate and call A+ first! They will be my first call in the future!
One of the best companies I have ever dealt with. Professional, courteous, reasonable and efficient. Highly recommend.
I never leave reviews but Sal (I think his name is) was great. Both times we used them they showed up the next day on time and did a fast and efficient job. Personable and reliable. Highly recommend.

Kyle and Joe were wonderful! Very efficient process. I called and gave brief information to a very professional person. They came out the next day. Wiped their feet, quoted me a very fair price, and removed my furniture. I’m very pleased with their service and friendliness. I will definitely recommend them to my family and friends! Meredith R.
The 3 man crew did a fantastic job in clearing out and disposing of several large and small items that still remained after a 2 day estate sale. Items removed included beds and mattresses, 3 couches, bedroom chest of drawers, old refrigerator and electric stove, computer desk, old and very heavy television, several tools plus much more.Very courteous workers and owner was great to work with. Highly recommend and you won’t be disappointed.
AMAZING!!! 30 years of junk in a HUGE truck garage. We could not have done this job without A+ Enterprises. Thanks to Sal, Joe and the entire staff. I've never met in this day and age such HARD WORKERS!!! Also extremely polite and professional. I HIGHLY recommend this company to everyone. My rating is A+++++++++++

A+ is a first-rate, highly professional outfit. They offered courteous, efficient, same-day service at a more-than-fair price. I recommend them with great confidence.
Sal was great to work with. I was so stressed about a large deck in the back of my house that was collapsing. Sal came right over and gave me a very fair price and two days later the job was done. And a really good job. He even hauled away a piece of junk for me at the last minute. I highly recommend this company and plan to use them again as the need arises

Requested a free estimate and they called me back in seconds! They were much more affordable than other big name companies in the area and provided service the day I requested. The movers were friendly and awesome! They moved out my awful bulky sofa with no issues! Absolutely would recommend to anyone! They are efficient and completely organized!
Called A + enterprise junk removal to have a few items removed from my apartment. Sal and his team were GREAT!!! Fair price and fast service plan on using them again.
EXTREMELY PLEASANT AND PROFESSIONAL! Gave them a call to remove some old furniture and assorted boxes of junk. They said the had a crew in my area the next morning and could be here at 9am. Arrived right at 9 on the dot and got straight to work. They battled through all my cobwebs and work quick and efficiently. No trouble or damage from moving some big items in narrow areas. The price they quoted was great value for all the work they did. I have already and will continue to HIGHLY recommend them.
