Environmental Road Surface & Base Course Paving Experts

25th Anniversary of Road Surface Recycling - Paving Contractor

We appreciate your interest.  At Road Surface Recycling Inc. our 100% Hot In-place Recycled Asphalt Paving technology allows for 30-50% financial savings compared to conventional paving. In turn, provides more road kilometers to be paved for the same tax budgeted dollars.  We want to thank you for checking us out, below are a few key points as to why we are: 


Stronger, Faster, Cleaner and much Greener!


  • STRONGER:  The recycling process utilizes  pre-coated" aggregates that already exist in your roads. As a result, our stability numbers are much higher than conventional paving plant mix. We lay rejuvenated hot mix asphalt on top of a hot planed/milled surface providing a monolithic bond, (no tack needed) which will not allow water to penetrate the seam between the top and base course. Ensuring the elimination of pot holes in the future! 


  • FASTER: At the end of every-day we leave finished product, ready to be driven on. This leads to reduced traffic delays, congestion, pedestrian inconveniences and safety concerns. More importantly, reduced liability to the contract owner and contractor of raised manholes, catch basins and rough milled surfaces.  


  • CLEANER: All our materials used in our operations are already located onsite. The recycling process eliminates the need for the following: mining operations, trucking of aggregate, cold milling and hauling of millings or Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP). These millings are stored in large “RAP Piles” which have harmful run off fines. The Road Surface Recycling Hot In-place Recycled process eliminates our contribution to RAP piles and emissions caused by asphalt plants and trucking.  


  • GREENER: Hot In-place Recycling uses 70% less petroleum products, we use 100% of the existing aggregate and old asphalt cement on-site and reduce greenhouse gases by 70% compared to conventional paving methods.

Climate Change is real, and we need to do our part to save what resources we have left for future generations. We are here to say that there is  technology to build Stronger, Faster, Greener and Cleaner roads! 


The RSR Hot In-Place Recycling (HIPR) process far exceeds the current way roads are paved today and we have been at for more than 20+ years paving contractor experience. We are not here to replace conventional paving, we an additional tool in the toolbox of your infrastructure road engineers, when resurfacing. 


Now is the time to consider what many are calling the roads of the future, because they last well into the future and cost half the price! 


With the Paris Climate Agreement in place, we need to step up and make sure we embrace hot in place recycled technology that can significantly reduce Greenhouse Gasses. Here is the Canada's Mid Century Long Term Strategy, we need to let our government leaders know we want to embrace HIPR technology.  http://unfccc.int/files/focus/long-term_strategies/application/pdf/canadas_mid-century_long-term_strategy.pdf

Asphalt Paving vs. 100% RSR HIPR

Conventional Paving Process

Quarry

Involves milling, mining & paving....this process can take anywhere between 3 to 14 days over a period of one month for a finished product in many cases. Below are the basic steps, we will be happy to plan a lunch & learn or visit your roads. Contact us today for a Presentation on the conventional paving process vs. the 100% Hot In-Place Recycled Asphalt Paving process.  


1. Milling

2. Trucking RAP to pile

3. Sweeping & Clean-up

4. Quarry Blasting & Crushing

5. Trucking Aggregates

6. RAP Crushing & Screening

7. Asphalt Plant Produced HMA

8. Trucking HMA to site

9. Tacking milled surface

10. Paving Operation Roadside


To put this into perspective first we moved 36,760 mt of grindings from the old road. Then 24,650 tons from the Quarry to the asphalt plant. And finally, the plant has to produce and haul 36,760 mt tons of new HMA back to the original job, all ruining the good roads. Ultimately, we must move 98,170 mt to replace the original 36,760 mt .

100% Hot In-place Recycling moves NO aggregates. Hot In place Recycled asphalt would eliminate the enormous amount of trucking needed on our already existing roads and help fight against global warming.

HIPR Process

Road Surface Recycling 100% Hot In-place Recycled Asphalt Paving Contractor

100% Hot In-Place Recycling (HIPR) is one multifunction step. We do all six functions below at the same time!  This process eliminates the milled, tack surface being exposed to traffic, has no RAP waste and there is no traffic congestion due to trucking back and forth to the asphalt plants. Not to mention the benefits gained for the environment. We cut CO2 by 70% and pave more road kilometers for the same tax dollars. It's time to do what's right for the environment and the Taxpayer. 


  1. Preheating
  2. Gradation adjustment
  3. Hot milling
  4. Rejuvenating
  5. Mixing
  6. Relaying


And at the end of every day we provide a finished product that is ready to be driven on. 


Quality Control

• Hot In place recycled materials are subjected to the HMA quality control standards that ensures the HIR asphalt product meets mix design criteria and standard HMA specifications. 

• All tests are performed on the Recycled Mix placed on the road after processing. This is called end result testing.

• The AC is extracted and tested after processing.


Note: Airport, highway, county and city roads are all viable applications for HIR process. Call today to set up a road ride assessment to see if your roads are an applicable project. We would welcome the opportunity to be your eco-friendly partner and paving contractor on the next job!
