Green Construction: Concrete Recycling

At Tamate Landscaping we strive to be a responsible and contributing member of the community. From our commitment in terms of reducing our carbon footprint, to working tirelessly toward achieving sustainable practice by green construction techniques which harm no one for generations ahead! We take our responsibility to the environment seriously.

We take pride knowing that you can depend on us when it comes time for any landscaping needs- big or small; commercial grade sites with residential homes alike all call upon this company’s expertise so they are always ready– willing , and able.

At Tamate we understand that the landscaping industry has a significant impact on the environment, and we are committed to doing our part to reduce our carbon footprint.

We recycle our green waste and use sustainable materials when we can. We also use drought-tolerant plants to minimize water usage. In addition, we educate our clients about ways they can reduce their own carbon footprints.

By working together, we can make a difference in the fight against climate change. Little things, if done consistently add up and make a difference.

Here you see one of the recycling facilities that we deal with regularly. When we excavate concrete during the demolition phase of a project, we sort it and bring it to Baylands Soil Processing. They only take “clean” concrete so it must be sorted.

No bricks accepted. BSP then grinds up the concrete and resells it to us and others for use as base rock, drain rock and other construction materials. They are only 5 minutes south of San Francisco so using their services not only saves on our diesel cost but saves tons of diesel in general by not having un-recycled material trucked in from out of the area on big rigs.  In addition, it keeps the material out of our landfills.
