The reuse or recycling of concrete can often avoid high costs and the environmental impacts associated with disposal to landfill due to taxes and transportation. Nevertheless, the feasibility of recycling concrete tends to depend on the location. If there is no local demand it is not usually economical to recycle concrete due to transport costs and the availability of cheaper primary aggregates. The introduction of the Aggregates Levy in April 2002, which is applied to the extraction of primary materials, may go some way to changing market conditions in favour of recycling as aggregate or reuse as fill.
