July 2018 Tour of Veit Construction Recycling Facility

The AIA Minnesota kCOTE tour of Veit’s Minneapolis construction waste diversion facility on July 12 taught us how architects, employing Construction Waste Management specifications, can divert tons of waste from landfills, and witnessed it in action. The fascinating tour demonstrated why some items previously thought recyclable in our market were unable to meet diversion criteria, and why steel and wood are the materials of choice for a chance at second lives. Watch for future kCOTE meetings and events! (See tour photos below)
