Heidelberg Materials partnered with Z Materials to accept construction debris, demolition debris and concrete gravel at the new locations at 1700 Morse St., just off the 15th Avenue exit off Cline Avenue in Gary, and at 310 E. 106th St. on the banks of the Calumet River in Chicago’s East Side neighborhood just across the state line.

It will turn the old building materials into aggregates that can be recycled for use in ready-mixed concrete and other base materials.
