Wayne Stocks, Habitat’s lead person on the project, said Cascade initially invited Habitat in just to cherry pick items from the site, such as fixtures, cabinets and doors. But an offer was made and accepted to deconstruct the buildings as well.
“It’s a really neat deal,” Stocks said. “I haven’t really heard of any other large companies thinking that green.”
Stocks hopes to limit waste for the landfill to a single large truckload. “Everything else will be reused, resold or recycled,” he said.
“That’s a huge savings to the environment,” he said. “Cascade Steel is really thinking out of the box here.”
