From Ruin, to Rubble, to...
Deacon Patrick Moynihan and Volunteer Andrew Hyrcza utilize the campus rock-crusher.
Around the LCS campus, seismic repairs continue to produce "rubble." This material cannot be used for much as it is. However, by crushing it, we can find several useful components, such as sand and smaller rocks. The act of manually crushing the rocks is not an easy job, but it does wonders for the upper body in addition to providing materials for various campus beautification projects.
Lately we have used the recycled components in landscaping and non-load bearing construction projects. To date, we cannot use crushed rubble in new, load bearing construction. We are doing some testing to determine if it is possible to add some of the recycled material to replace aggregate in new construction, but it will take a lot of testing before that can happen.
