Feedback needed on concrete recycling bill

HB 1695 sponsored by Rep. Judy Clibborn (D- Mercer Island) would require WSDOT and local governments to meet concrete and construction aggregate recycling standards. It is being heard in the House Environment Committee on Monday, February 9 at 1:30 pm. Its companion, SB 5480 sponsored by Sen. Curtis King (R-Yakima), was heard in the Senate Transportation Committee on January 27.

The bills have the laudable goal of increasing the reuse and recycling of construction aggregate and concrete. AWC has identified concerns with how the requirements would be implemented and the potential to increase the cost of local transportation projects. AWC staff is working with the bill proponents and would appreciate feedback on the bill. Please contact Alison Hellberg.
