Recycling asphaltic concrete pavements was investigated as a means of utilizing the asphalt and graded aggregates they contain and solving waste disposal problems. Discarded asphaltic concrete pavement materials from three sources in the Las Vegas, Nevada, area were studied; each contained a different aggregate base material. Laboratory testing showed that all three source materials could be recycled successfully into quality pavement materials, with properties comparable to those of virgin asphaltic concrete.
