Recycling

September 9, 2009
We found a local company Cannonsburg Wood Products that accepts all types of wood waste for recycling, including plywood scraps and even pieces with nails. Liz loaded up the trailer full of small scraps from construction and delivered it to them to be ground up into mulch. Some of the pieces look pretty good in this photo but most are smaller than the ones on top and many of them contain nails, staples, etc. We assume they remove all the metal with magnets, and the mulch they sell looks pretty good.

The drywall is nearly complete, and all of the board has been hung on the walls and ceilings throughout the house. Here's a photo of the scraps, loaded into a 30-yard container from Phoenix Resources. The container is roughly half full so we have about 15 cubic yards of drywall scraps. These will be ground up and recycled as a soil amendment.
