The article contains the data on the state of natural aggregate resources and attention has been paid to the enormous scale of the production of concrete and produced rubble-concrete waste in the world. The methods of recycling concrete debris used in the world along with their subjective assessment are presented in the paper. The legal regulations on concrete recycling defined by the European Union and Polish law are briefly characterized.
