Limestone Quarries, hard rock quarries, cement plants, coal mines, or Sand and Gravel pits all use and abuse lots of conveyor belts for which there is very little recycling of except for internal use, horse trailers, snow plows, etc. Tossing it in trash is also costly due to the volume and weight it takes up in the landfill so they usually have a stockpile of used conveyor belting somewhere on site. They usually like to get of rid in as big a piece as possible – cutting it is a pain. Liability is usually an issue with you going on their property to acquire the amount you need so be prepared to offer alternatives for acquiring what you need. FYI the bigger the operation, the wider the belts they will use. The smaller operations usually have narrower belting. Be prepared, conveyor belting is very heavy. If you have a trailer, they may load it onto the trailer w/o you leaving your vehicle. You should have several limestone quarries (Servtex near Schertz, etc.) in your area along with several cement kilns. Good luck.
