The article discusses a plan by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to survey concrete recyclers and aggregate producers in order to provide the most accurate measure of the amount of concrete recycled in the country. The USGS is responsible for measuring natural aggregate production, including crushed stone and sand and gravel, in the U.S. The plan of the USGS is supported by the Construction Materials Recycling Association (CMRA).
