concrete, unpainted brick, unpainted block, waste asphalt and
reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) from roadways, curbs, sidewalks

(a) An aggregate, a sub-grade or a sub-base material for roadway or
parking lot construction;
(b) A construction material for compacted roadway shoulder
applications covered with a sealer (i.e., a thin bituminous coating
