May of 2008 we had a group of 2nd and 3rd
grade students from the Highland Park Elementary
School. They asked questions about our facility and
the recycling and disposal operations at our site.
The questions included what happens to materials
that are recycled, what do they become and how long
does the recycling take. They also brought us a copy
of the questions they had, we greatly enjoyed the
time they spent with us. We thank the classes for
coming and welcome other field trips to be
scheduled, please contact

recycled enough material to save the energy
to power over 500 houses in 2007. We also
recycled the metal equivalent of over 1000
cars. We also recycled enough wood and paper
to save over 1000 trees. Recycling has many
benefits from energy consumption, water use
reduction, and material conservation.
Through the Frank Road C&D recycling we have
benefited the community in many ways during
2007 and look forward to doing even more in
Through the efforts of Columbus Mayor Colemanís
administration and the Get Green Columbus
initiative, Frank Road C&D has had the ability to
work to help Columbus. This yearís efforts resulted
in many things from Biking efforts for Columbus to
Green Business competitions. In one of these
initiatives the City of Columbus has made forward
thinking moves to recycle Demolition Debris from the
Columbus area demolition sites. We at Frank Road
C&D are happy to have been involved and look forward
to working on other City of Columbus Initiatives.
In early October, the Jackson Township Fire
Department used the Frank Road C&D site as a
training ground for the protective services they
provide to our community. The fire departments have
the responsibility to respond to a variety of
events. In an effort to keep efficient on their use
of the equipment for confined space and disaster
work they practiced using the equipment to cut into
concrete pipes and concrete slabs.
