Management Planning for Earthquake Demolition Debris

D’Appolonia developed a master plan for the management and recycling of demolition debris from a large earthquake in Colombia. Our personnel visited more than 50 emergency landfill sites and developed procedures and costs for remediation of these sites to acceptable standards. Recycling of the debris to create aggregate for construction was a key component of our debris management plan.
