This was the kind of storm which was predicted to be bad but quickly got out of hand.

Appliance Recyclers in Chattanooga

appliance recyclingMany folks in Chattanooga have jumped on the recycling bandwagon but there is one construction company that has taken the recycling philosophy to a whole new level: They’ve actually recycled entire homes. Collier Construction is putting the finishing touches on a six-home development project. Typically, Collier would build custom homes from the ground up but one at a time. For this project, they took existing properties and refurbished them into brand new homes. This meant a little structural recycling. Remember that recycling is simply reusing raw material. That works for plastics and home foundations!

However, every bin of recyclable material is helping reduce the volume at area landfills and that’s good news for Chattanooga.
