 Garage Dismantle

and Deconstruction Day


Saturday April 16, 2016      9-4 pm

We succeeded in sectioning the garage, starting with the roof, until the garage collapsed onto the cement floor.

We placed the debris in two large dumpsters, where it was hauled to Atomic Recycling, sorted and recycled.

There were 12 volunteers for the morning, and we had the garage completely deconstructed and loaded out in 3 hours.   It was amazing.

After lunch, a second wave of volunteers helped us clean up the site, and clear out debris from the basement.   They also carried out all the chimney brick, which we stacked neatly in the side yard.
