OUR COMMITMENT TO GREEN
The Benefits of Recycled Asphalt
Asphalt is 100% recyclable and is the single most recycled material in North America with about 73 million tons being recycled each year. Brothers is committed to striving to recycle as much material as possible in each project we undertake.
Brothers world-class employees and skilled technicians are all highly trained on the best practices to effectively remove and preserve asphalt for reuse.
New asphalt mixes contain about 10-30% recycled material and thanks to other responsible companies like Brothers we are seeing a steady increase in recycled materials each year.
The benefits of recycling speak for themselves. For each ton of asphalt produced from our recycled materials the earth experiences a significant benefit without any detriment to quality of the project.

Brothers is committed to working with the industry’s top eco-friendly producers & partners to grow the percentage of recycled materials each year.
Why Pervious Concrete?
Where traditional concrete is solid, Pervious Concrete has a porous open-cell structure allowing our concrete to absorb 3-5 gallons of water/square foot per minute, and it allows for the natural passage and growth of tree roots.
The EPA reports that 90% of pollutants fall within the first 1-1/2 inches of rainfall. Typically this initial rain cannot be handled by infrastructure and storm drains and therefore is directed to public waterways. Pervious Concrete allows for little to no run off helping infrastructure and water treatment plants to effectively process water runoff.
Additionally, Pervious Concrete is typically lighter – meaning there are immense cost savings in night illumination. Contact us to learn all of the benefits Brothers has to offer.
