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

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.
