NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City councilman wants some recycled concrete to be used in all new street construction projects.

Councilman Ben Kallos plans to introduce legislation mandating that at least 30 percent of concrete come from demolished roads and buildings. He says it’s needed to reduce carbon emissions.

The Daily News (https://nydn.us/1BJ43kz ) says the bill would let the city waive the requirement if officials find there isn’t enough recycled material available.
