    Used Concrete Blocks where to get?

    Hi all,

    does anyone know where to get used concrete blocks, crushed concrete to build a retaining wall of 80m?
    Preferably around Rayong.

    Size should be 30cm (ish) wide and random length. There are getting lots of houses and condos getting demolished but its almost imposible to google for a company that sells these concrete rubble.
    Please help.

    Cheers

    Will

    No need to buy look along the sides of the roads where they dump them or follow a truck from a demo site see where it tips the load.

    Yep...he almost answered his own inquiry.
    One needs to seek out in the flesh wherever they are available.

    Contacts are everything here.

    A retaining wall made out of recycled cement blocks? If you expect it to last needs to be reinforced concrete with substantial footings and perhaps buttresses methinks.. False economy...H’apath of tar ?

    My thoughts as well. If he's going for used concrete blocks to save money it'll be a loss in the long term.

    Its just to cover an offset of 50 - 80cm and make it rock like looking. More like a raised garden bed type, nothing special. So these concrete blocks should do the job.
    I have seen many doing it on Pinterest and it looks quite good.

    For the surroundings of my Land i will not use rubble for sure and a solid foundation is a must I understand.
