    Central: Tour - Big City Crushed Concrete 

    Thursday, April 4, 2024

    Tour Starts Promptly at 2:30 pm
    2900 N, FM973
    Austin, TX 78725




    About the Tour

    Big City Crushed Concrete provides the construction industry significant economic and environmental benefits by recycling clean, concrete rubble into TXDOT Grade rock materials. By using crushed concrete products, anyone from homeowners to landscapers to general contractors can help reduce land-filled concrete waste, conserve natural resources, and gain significant economic savings on materials and disposal costs. Big City Crushed Concrete also helps projects reach the recycled material goals required by LEED. 

    During this event, we will tour the concrete rubble hill, the crushing equipment, and the properties as we expand to receive more concrete and asphalt rubble.

    Josh Hylkema will be leading the tour. A co-owner, Josh has been with Big City 21 years and is the resident expert on material, QC, and all things “recycling” as it relates to concrete and asphalt.

    Space on this tour is limited; register today!
