Miller Environmental, the subcontractor responsible for the demolition of Aztec Center, is providing monthly reports for the recycling and disposal of materials. Here are the totals so far with breakdowns for June and July:
Recycled Truck Loads Disposed Truck Loads Rec. Tonnage Dis. Tonnage
June 13 8 150.74 47.89
July 28 28 384.47 115.65
Total 41 36 535.21 163.54
Overall, 1,070,420 pounds of Aztec Center materials have been recycled while 327,080 pounds had to be disposed. Thus, 76.6 percent of the building has been recycled thus far, and this total doesn’t even include the concrete brought to a staging area in Parking Lot W waiting to be crushed and re-used for Aztec Student Union.
The August report will come out in mid to late September. Six trucks have been hauling off demolished materials the last couple of days, and they will continue doing so for the next couple of weeks.
We’ll also check in on the concrete crusher in Lot W as soon as it gets going.
