A conversion of one tonne of crushed concrete into cubic yards returns a total of 0.65 cubic yards.

Concrete is a compound of cement mixed with gravel or rocks and water. This mixture sets and hardens and is used for setting things like fence posts in place.

Crushed concrete is exactly what you'd think it is; concrete that has been broken up and can be used for creating a sub base of drainage layer. A variety of crushed concrete is clean crushed concrete which is crushed concrete that has had dust and tiny chippings removed from the mixture. This leaves you with only reasonable sized and regular crushed concrete. This makes it easier to use when you are doing the task in which it is being used for.

Usually, crushed concrete will be somewhere within the region of 75 mm to 40 mm in diameter. When the crushed concrete has been compacted into the space into which the drainage is due to go, it shows its benefits as the rough, irregular but small nature of the clean crushed concrete forms a very hard wearing surface which would last for a long time.

Crushed concrete in its simplest form is basically a strong and hard-wearing form of gravel which can be compacted more easily due to the nature of the original concrete from which it was made. Crushed concrete is usually sold in bulk; one bag could weigh up to one tonne alone. However, this one bag would have approximate dimensions of one metre by one metre by half a metre. When put into an online metre to yards converter, this equates to 0.65 cubic yards. For obvious reasons, this must be lifted carefully, never alone and using the proper equipment. Failure to do so could result in a severe injury.

1 cubic yard of cement has an approx. Density of 144lb/cu. Ft. At 27 cu.ft./ cu.yd that equates to 1.94 ton.

Check in this table about different types of concrete:
I read somewhere that for crushed concrete I cubic yard equals 1.5 tons. Therefore, one ton equals 2/3 cubic yards.
