Since the massive wildfires swept through Sonoma County and surrounding areas, Pacific Recycling Solutions (PRS) has been accepting concrete, metal and vehicles from fire debris sites at its facilities in Windsor, California. While the metal is transported off-site for recycling, the concrete has been stockpiled at Pruitt Industrial Park.
Over 100,000 tons of concrete came across the scales, large pieces that were once patios, driveways and foundations of homes and buildings since leveled by the October wildfires. This material is about to get a second life.
PRS has begun to crush and grind this material into Recycled Class II Aggregate Base Rock that is compliant with CalTrans and City of Santa Rosa specifications. The rock can be used in multiple projects associated with the rebuild including roads, driveways, sidewalks and building pads.
In an effort to buoy the recovery through repurposed material and financial support, PRS is donating up to $100,000 from base rock sales to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund.
The recycled base rock can be a part of the rebuild effort and the donation will support those survivors needing to rebuild.
Pacific Recycling Solutions is part of the family of companies operated by C&S Waste Solutions.
