When Obama is sworn in, there is going to be a big stimulus package passed that will include two things: green jobs and infrastructure repair.  Recycled materials can probably be incorporated for many aspects of infrastructure repair- glass aggregate in road beds, tire shreds as light fill, compost for erosion control, recycled asphalt, maybe even bring back glassphalt or rubber modified asphalt, etc. 

Does anyone know if anyone is thinking about  or advocating for this?  And, if not, any ideas on who should and how to get them to? I would imagine there's a list out there somewhere of recycled highway products. I think things are going to be flying fast and furiously come the beginning of the year.  Any language to spec require recycled products should probably get moving now, maybe get some key legislators on the public works committee to run with this.

This seems like a great opportunity to boost local markets.
