How to Deal with Reclaimed Stone?

Updated:2013-01-09 16:41:08
Building construction, demolition and renovation activity which happen every day are always produce various stone waste. We would feel waste if just throw them directly, then there would be a problem about how to deal with them? Well, if you still confused of handling them, you could take the following applications into account:

1. Slabs and tiles can become paving material. This non-structural application does not require as extensive a testing procedure as cladding or masonry.
2. Stone that is unsuitable as a structural or finish material can be used to construct gabion retaining walls. Stone (rip-rap) gabion walls are more cost effective than reinforced concrete and can easily be constructed by non-specialist local labor.
3. Smaller pieces can act as gravel fill or concrete aggregate.
4. Natural stone in powder form can be used in fertilizer or as a sidewalk bed. Its inherent mineral constituents, such as calcium and magnesium, are needed nutrients for soil and plant life.
5. Flat stone fragments can be strategically laid to create a mosaic walkway, while bulkier cobbles can line a flower bed or pathway.
6. Stone fragments can be adhered together to generate a completely new appearance.

When a building is scheduled to be remodeled or replaced, save pieces of the original structure to incorporate in the new edifice. This can provide a sense of history or nostalgia.
