Quick wins no 1 l.jpg

Quick Wins No. 1

  • Our committee has worked with Bi-County Solid Waste Management along with a few selected contractors to improve construction recycling. This effort has proven successful for the collection of cardboard, wood, plastic, and sheetrock. As a result of this effort, Bi-County SWM purchased a sheet rock grinder for loan to any contractor wishing to use it to grind leftover sheetrock.

  • The sheetrock can then be worked into the dirt as lime for the yards. Bi-County and the contractors were eager to work with us on creating successful solutions that helped all involved. It is recommended that this program continue with the expansion of more contractors and locations for recycle collections sites for construction waste.
