Construction and demolition projects generate substantial amounts of scrap material and debris that need to be properly disposed, recycled, or processed through a construction and demolition transfer station to minimize its environmental impact. If you’re a contractor or demolition firm looking to dispose of these kinds of waste materials, then James G. Grant Company’s transfer station for Somerville, Massachusetts is your ideal working partner.

Reusing and recycling of materials brought to our Somerville, Massachusetts, transfer station is one component of a larger environmentally-positive approach to construction. The efficient use of resources means reducing, reusing, and recycling much of the materials that remain after a construction, renovation, or demolition project, including lumber, masonry, wood, and green waste debris. Once processed through our transfer station, all of these materials can get a new life as reprocessed items such as wood fiber products, landscape fill, composite construction materials, and manufactured masonry products.
According to the EPA, over 600 million tons of C&D debris is generated annually in the United States – more than twice the amount of municipal solid waste. Of that C&D waste, approximately two-thirds of it gets recycled or reprocessed at a facility such as our transfer station, Somerville, Massachusetts, while the remaining third primarily ends up in landfills.
