ATC project recycling efforts really pay off

Metal from this disassembled, 60-year-old transmission structure and glass from its insulators will be recycled.

Environmental stewardship is a core value at American Transmission Co. that saves valuable resources and helps protect the environment. Last year, ATC and its contractors achieved an incredible rate of re-using or recycling 99 percent of non-hazardous construction waste. This included more than 4,864 tons of various metals, glass, wood, concrete and cardboard. This year to date, ATC and its contractors have recycled more than 3,476 tons of material and collected $667,363 through construction project recycling efforts.

 Wood decking used during construction, as seen in the above photo of the Milwaukee Zoo Interchange Project, is an example of ATC project material that is re-used or recycled.
