DIVERSION, RECYCLING AND SALVAGING

On the majority of Dec-Tam’s demolition projects, recyclable construction materials are source separated on site. These materials include:

  • Scrap metal
  • Lumber
  • Concrete
  • Masonry

Source separation on site is typically more cost-effective and yields the highest recycling rates. In some instances the debris is commingled and hauled off site to a sorting facility for separation and recycling. Reducing waste saves customers money, conserves energy and reduces pollution.

Industrial Strip Outs:

On certain projects customers have production lines that are no longer in use and need to reconfigure manufacturing space. In this case, the building is completely gutted so the space can be redesigned. All nonstructural equipment is removed. We have performed this work at:

  • Electrical Power Generation Stations
  • Industrial Manufacturing Facilities
  • University Laboratories
  • Hi-tech manufacturing sites
  • Paint shops

Because our technicians are cross trained in environmental remediation, if environmental hazardous are discovered during a project, or if the floors need to be prepared a certain way, Dec-Tam personnel can handle it. The project can continue on schedule and the owner does not have to worry about bringing in additional contractors.

Reuse and Recycle

Dec-Tam believes in sustainability. On our demolition projects we try to reduce, reuse and recycle most of the materials that remain after a renovation or demolition project. This often includes deconstructing certain parts of structures which is the process of orderly dismantling building components for reuse or recycling. By recycling, we find another use for used and unwanted equipment that would otherwise end up in a landfill. The items that we often extract for our customers for salvage and resale include:

  • Electrical switchgear, breakers and bus sections
  • Dimensional Lumber
  • I beams
  • Industrial fixtures or machinery.
