Since April 2017, 5,018 tons of material have been recycled while 220 tons were landfilled. According to the report, the recycled material includes cardboard, bricks, wood, metals, scraps and demolition debris.
The recycling effort is part of the Civic Center’s “go green” practice for the renovation. According to the report, officials will seek U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification once renovation is complete.
The Charleston Civic Center is also pledging to continue waste reduction efforts through educating customers, clients and staff.
