A Connecticut asphalt and concrete company will present plans to add a concrete recycling facility to its operations in Meriden to the city’s Planning Commission, a report by My Record Journal says. Suzio York Hill, headquartered in Meriden, says the facility will process concrete, sand and stone for reuse.

The plans include a 1,200-square-foot building and a 7,500 square-foot open air space with several holding pits. The facilities will replace an older structure on Westfield Road, the report says.

Trucks will transport the material left from a construction or demolition project to the facility where it will be sorted using a large screw and water filtration system. The concrete can be used for other building projects, and the sand and stone can be used under bedding plants in nurseries or as a filler for closed landfills.

Associate City Planner Paul Dickson says in the report that the project received conditional approval from the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission on Dec. 6. The Planning Commission will review the project Dec. 13.

The report says Suzio has been recycling concrete since the 1970s.
