After many years of service to the sisters, the buildings were determined obsolete. The School Sisters of St. Francis engaged General Capital Group, Bedrock Construction and Northtrack Construction to lead demolition efforts. WasteCap was tasked with providing third-party waste management services for salvage and recycling efforts.
As a third party waste management service consultant, WasteCap educated project management staff on best practices, conducted monthly inspections and compiled data tickets into WasteCapTRACE, the team's proprietary tracking software.
The six-building demolition project included maximizing building component recycling and reuse based on practicality and diversion costs.
At the project's close, WasteCap surpassed the original diversion goal of 85% with a landfill diversion rate of 98.48%. Over 25,000 tons of non-hazardous solid waste generated by demolition were reused or recycled.
Materials recycled included:
Since the project ended, the School Sisters of St. Francis filled the area with a memorial honoring the former convent grounds. Travis Blomberg, Executive Director of WasteCap, attended a dedication ceremony held Saturday, October 14.

You have given very essential data for us. It is excellent and good for everyone. Keep posting always. I am very thankful to you.
I understand their position when they have a report that there is a need to reduce the production of waste, then they will go to any lengths to implement all this, I understand that on the one hand it is not entirely necessary, but even such a drop will make it better for everyone!
