How can Kent County Department of Public Works help?
Explore the waste stream options below for how you can reuse, recycle, compost, or dispose of the item you are trying to get rid of through a KCDPW facility or service.
If your concrete, asphalt, and aggregate item is still in great shape and you just don’t have a use for it anymore, consider donating or repurposing it! Facebook Marketplace, Freecycle, Craigslist, or your local BuyNothing Project group are all great places to give away items.
Check out some of the Community Disposal Outlets below for any places that accept this material for reuse or recycling.
Aggregate, concrete, and asphalt items are NOT compostable.
Concrete, asphalt, and aggregate items SHOULD NEVER go in your curbside recycling cart or in our recycling drop-off stations.
Due to their heavy and bulky nature, these items can potentially cause harm by landing on a staff member’s hand while sorting or damage/jam up sorting machines preventing recyclables from getting recycled at all.

Concrete, asphalt, and aggregate items are not considered hazardous waste.
Keeping concrete, asphalt, and aggregate items out of the landfill, when possible, and in reuse or at least recycled ensures we give those valuable resources a second chance at life and use!
However, if you cannot recycle or repurpose this type of material, this type of waste is accepted for reuse in building landfill roads at one of Kent County Department of Public Work’s facilities for FREE:
- South Kent Waste & Recycling Center in Byron Center
