LEEDing the way

The recycling numbers for Aztec Center demolition in August have come in. Miller Environmental, the subcontractor responsible for the demo of Aztec Center, logged 65 truck loads with 768.46 tons of recycled materials during the month.  Only 11 truck loads with 87.17 tons were hauled off for disposal.  Here is the month-by-month breakdown:

Recycled Truck Loads      Disposed Truck Loads         Rec. Tonnage         Dis. Tonnage

June                   13                                          8                                 150.74                      47.89

July                    28                                         28                                384.47                     115.65

August               65                                         11                                768.46                       87.17

Total                106                                      47                               1303.67                 250.17

Overall, 2,607,340 pounds of Aztec Center materials have been recycled while 500,340 pounds has been disposed.  Thus, 83.9 percent of the building has been recycled thus far, and the total doesn’t even include the concrete brought to a staging area in Lot W where it’s being crushed and re-used for backfill for Aztec Student Union.

The road to LEED Platinum certification continues!
