Do you have pavement in need of repair? Have you considered using asphalt millings?

Paved surfaces deteriorate over time due to usage, weather and other factors. Typically, a portion of the surface will fail while the rest stays intact, such as the forming of pot holes and cracking. There are various ways to repair these damaged surfaces. Asphalt millings is an acceptable option so long as it satisfies a few requirements.

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation states that per Part 360.12(c)(3)(ix) “Using uncontaminated asphalt millings for paved surface construction and maintenance fall under the predetermined Beneficial Use Determination (BUD)”.

What does this mean?

Uncontaminated asphalt millings may be used for paved surfaces when it is a product that comes from an asphalt plant and/or meets a municipal or State specification.

When used in accordance with Part 360.12 asphalt millings are an appropriate product for pavement repairs.

Asphalt millings may not be used when defined as a waste, rather than a product.


Two examples of asphalt millings being defined as a waste under Part 360 are:

  1. The use of excess millings, which do not have a State or municipal specification, for another project.
  2. From a transfer station which stores asphalt millings as a waste.
