Branscome Paving Company is continuously searching for ways to lessen our impact on the environment. One of the most efficient ways to this goal is to recycle asphalt concrete. Asphalt concrete is 100% recyclable and one of the most recycled manmade products in the world. Re-using this product not only allows us to be more cost efficient but also curtails the need for virgin materials. This also reduces costs to our customers by providing the opportunity to merely maintain existing pavements as opposed to fully rebuilding them. Over time asphalt oxidizes and succumbs to the effects of weather and the environment. It is beneficial to remove the surface layer prior to the new asphalt overlays.
Branscome Paving Company owns and maintains several full size asphalt milling machines to mill up asphalt concrete pavement prior to new paving. This “milled” material is then hauled back to our asphalt manufacturing facility where it is processed into new asphalt concrete. These machines are staffed by well trained crew members, many of which have twenty or more years of experience in the asphalt paving industry.
