Paradise Quarry -the Specialists in Recycled Asphalt Surfaces


The range of materials that can be recycled is growing all the time, but many people still don’t realise that asphalt is one of the most commonly recycled materials in the world.  In fact, asphalt is 100% recyclable.
Not that long ago, when an old parking lot, road, or driveway was torn up, it would simply become dead-weight in a landfill somewhere. But that’s no longer the case.  Paradise Contractors collect, stockpile, and reprocess this material to produce a high-quality aggregate ready for re-installation and treatments.
Rural and residential landowners often choose recycled asphalt for driveways and commercial situations due to it being the most cost-effective option when upgrading from existing gravel surfaces.
The end result is a durable long-lasting sealed solution. Zero dust in the summer and zero sludge in the winter! Our photos clearly show the outcome.
Paradise Quarry Contractors are well established and have a proven track record for delivering a consistently high-quality outcome with all recycled asphalt surfaces.
Paradise Quarry is also one of New Zealand’s leading boutique quarry’s supplying oceanic schist for some of this country’s premier landscaping developments.

Why you should consider recycled asphalt


It is affordable

One of the major advantages of using recycled asphalt is that it is not too heavy on your wallet. A recycled asphalt application does not require as many resources as virgin asphalt.

It is friendly to the environment 

Asphalt is normally thrown away in landfills.  Recycling helps to minimize the use of non-renewable resources when old asphalt is re-purposed.

It has good bonding qualities

Tar is still present in recycled asphalt. This means that recycled asphalt will still bond easily.

It allows percolation 

Recycled asphalt holds up well in the wet season and winter season. It allows water to pass through.
