Is Recycled for Other Uses

Construction, good; recycling, better

Mar. 15, 2011 - The extensive construction going on at the Virginia School for the Deaf and the Blind campus is a plus for many reasons.

The area is fortunate not only to have the historic school remain, but also to have the multi-million dollar project going on during this deep recession.

Now we have even more reason to celebrate, particularly with Earth Day coming up next month. Reporter Rebecca Martinez wrote in Monday's edition of The News Leader that Kjellstrom + Lee Construction assures us much of the project's debris isn't hauled to a dump, but rather is recycled for other uses.

The process saves money in hauling, which is good for the company. Even better, it saves the earth, which is good for all of us.

Green Earth LLC, the materials recovery facility in Harrisonburg that is making the recycling possible, is one of many up-and-coming businesses making a profit from the green habit. {continued}
