Recycling facts about the Building 18 Demolition

By Amy Goings, MPA
Vice President for Operations

Thank you Dr. Venditti for recognizing the work being done to dismantle Building 18 in a manner that will allow us to reuse some of the timbers in Buildings 21 and 15.

With that said, I wanted the College community to know that 90 to 95% of the materials from Building 18 are being recycled and reused.  For example, all concrete and concrete blocks with be ground into crushed rock to be sold as fill materials.  All metal components are going to recyclers.  Wood/plywood materials that cannot be reused are also being recycled.  Timbers are being salvaged.

The only material that is not being recycled is the contaminated portions of the building that were properly removed prior to demolition.

This environmentally-friendly demolition process is part of the College’s efforts to ensure that the Health Sciences Facility is a LEED Silver building.
