The Mineral Products Association has produced analysis in regards to recycled aggregates. The report, Mineral Products Industry at a Glance 2016, indicates 28% of aggregates in 2015 came from recycled or secondary sources.

Mineral Planning Authorities in England are responsible for assessing recycled aggregates. When undertaking their Annual Aggregate Assessments they identify the proportion of construction aggregates that derive from recycled sources and estimate the future supply of recycled materials.
