Environmental Responsibility

Our Commitment

Maymead is committed operating in an environmentally responsible manner.  We are constantly monitoring and evaluating to ensure that all operations are conducted in an environmentally responsible manner

Environmental stewardship is a major focus of the United States Department of Transportation strategic plan.  According to the Environmental Protection Agency, environmental stewardship is an equally shared responsibility.

The Federal Highway Administration supports and promotes the use of recycled highway materials in pavement construction in an effort to preserve the natural environment, reduce waste, and provide a cost effective material for constructing highways.

Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP)

Reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) is the term given to removed and/or reprocessed pavement materials containing asphalt and aggregates.  These materials are generated when asphalt pavements are removed for reconstruction, resurfacing, or to obtain access to buried utilities.  When properly crushed and screened, RAP consists of high-quality, well-graded aggregates coated by asphalt cement.   RAP is processed using a series of operations, including crushing, screening, conveying, and stacking and the resulting processed material is incorporated into asphalt mixes.
