Denver story touts C&D advances.A feature in the Denver Post has put the spotlight on the active building and demolition-related recycling market in Colorado. The feature, which ran in the newspaper on Tues., March 16, mentioned the re-use of materials as well as the massive concrete recycling When structures made of concrete are to be demolished, concrete recycling is an increasingly common method of disposing of the rubble.

The article's author noted that major projects are often done after cost-benefit analyses determine the wisdom of the procedure, while other recycling and reuse reuse - Using code developed for one application program in another application.

As noted in C&D Recycler in late 2002, the Stapleton project is expected to yield 6 million tons of recycled aggregate materials from old runways, taxiways and parking lots. The former airport is being redeveloped as an entirely new Denver neighborhood with a mix of residential, retail and commercial buildings.
