Join the August 22 Tour de Trash: Construction & Demolition Recycling

There is still time to reserve a seat for the Tour de Trash: Recycling and Demolition Recycling on Thursday, August 22nd. As construction of roads, rail, housing, and buildings continue on Oahu, learn how some companies are transforming this material into new, usable forms. Tour and transportation are completely free. Call 768-3200 now to sign up.


Visit West Oahu Aggregate to see how they separate and recycle demolition material for a variety of different purposes. Dirt is recycled into quality topsoil, rocks are crushed into various sizes for wall building and ground cover, and concrete and asphalt are used for aggregate in their recycled, ready-mix concrete.


PVT Land Company operates Oahu’s only construction and demolition landfill. Up to 80% of the total debris processed at PVT is recycled or processed into feed stock.  Learn how the feed stock is converted into synthetic natural gas through their gasification process.  The natural gas that is generated creates enough energy to power about 12,000 homes. Other material like metals are recycled overseas and rock and concrete are mixed as aggregate into road pavement.


Island Demo offers building deconstruction services to salvage as much as possible from demolition projects for reuse and recycling. Take a tour around their inner-city transfer station, which serves as a convenient option for contractors who can be spared the delivery to the PVT themselves.


There is one more Tour de Trash event scheduled for 2019. We are currently adding to a waitlist for our Tour de Trash: Recyclers and Waste Processors on Saturday, September 21st.  Call 768-3200 to sign up.
