VAST Enterprises is promoting a line of pavers formulated from 95 percent recycled materials that include tire rubber and plastic bottles. Designed with a companion grid system for automatic spacing and alignment, the approximately 3- x 6-in. Composite Pavers are molded in deck, conventional and permeable versions of 1.1-, 2.1-, and 2.5-in. thickness, respectively. At 6.5 to 11.3 lbs., the VAST products are about one-third the weight of conventional concrete units and can be cut with standard wood saws.
VAST EnterprisesÌ technology turns post-consumer recycled rubber and plastics into what company officials contend is the world’s first composite material that consists almost entirely of recycled materials and provides the strength, durability and aesthetics required for hardscape applications. The Composite Pavers are being produced at a Crystal, Minn., facility. Brock White Co., a St. Paul-based construction materials distributor in Minnesota, the Dakotas and Western Canada, is VAST’s charter dealer. Ûvastpavers.com
