Doty and Son’s Concrete is a leading manufacturer of high quality concrete products to the Chicago suburbs and they offer several products that incorporate environmentally friendly green materials. The green concrete products that Doty and Son’s offers include receptacles for trash or recycling and concrete benches that feature recycled plastic parts and aggregate gravel finishes with glass from recycled bottles. Each of these products is an environmentally friendly option that also adheres to Doty and Son’s standards for quality and durability.
The green concrete products (http://www.dotyconcrete.com/
green.html) that Doty and Son’s manufactures have HDPE recycled plastic parts and are available in two exposed aggregate finishes, tan blend pea gravel and light gray limestone, that each contain bits of recycled glass bottles in with the aggregate material. The recycled glass bits add color to create a unique look for the finishes and each product with the recycled glass finish contains glass from between 88 and 200 recycled bottles. The other green material used on these concrete products is HDPE recycled plastic which consists of 90% recycled milk jugs. Panels made from the HDPE plastic that are used on the trash and recycling receptacles include plastic from more than 400 milk jugs while the panels used for benches contain plastic from up to 670 recycled milk jugs.
The HDPE plastic panels also have other benefits besides the fact that they are environmentally friendly. These panels are moisture resistant which contributes to the durability of the product and prevents them from rotting, rusting, warping, or splintering like other materials. Another benefit of HDPE plastic is that it requires no maintenance and the colors are UV stabilized so that exposure to sunlight will not cause them to fade. Doty and Son’s offers their HDPE plastic panels in colors such as cedar, weathered redwood, and gray as well as brown, green, and white available by special order.
