                • What is Finlay dirt?

                  Finlay Dirt is something we discovered during the recycling process. Finlay dirt is a mixture of elements that is produced during recycling. We had the material tested and it is approved as a low volume change (LVC) material. Because this dirt comes off of our Finlay machine we decided to call it Finlay Dirt.
                • What is low volume change (LVC)?

                  Low Volume Change (LVC) materials have a liquid limit (LL) less than 40 and a plasticity index (PI) of at least 5, but less than 15. These materials are desirable under slabs, foundations, footers and in other applications where it is advantageous to have a non-shrinking and stable backfill material.

                • What is onsite recycling?

                  Onsite recycling is when we use portable recycling machinery at the jobsite where the debris is located. The debris is sorted and then processed into re-usable materials. Usually, the processed materials are utilized for backfill at the same site location.

                • What are the advantages of onsite recycling?

                  Onsite recycling allows for construction debris to be re-used as backfill at the same site location. Onsite recycling reduces the amount of debris that might otherwise end up in a typical landfill. Onsite recycling reduces jobsite traffic and congestion by reducing or eliminating material being hauled off site. When compared to the alternatives, onsite recycling provides a positive environmental impact and is a desirable eco-friendly green construction technique.
                • Can you implode a building?

                  Yes we can and do implode buildings and structures when this proves to be the best option.

                • What do you do with the demolition debris?

                  Demolition debris are sorted. Then recyclable materials are recycled either onsite or at one of our construction waste management facilities. Non-recyclable materials are properly disposed of in a local landfill.

                • What is a clean rubble landfill?

                  A clean rubble landfill is not like an ordinary landfill where a hole is dug, items are placed in the hole then covered up and left. A clean rubble landfill takes in items such as concrete, asphalt, rock, gravel, sand and dirt. The clean rubble landfill then sorts and recycles these items so that they can be used again.
                • What are the advantages of a clean rubble landfill?

                  Whether you take your clean rubble to an ordinary landfill or to a clean rubble facility such as ours you are going to incur dump fees. The main difference is that an ordinary landfill uses up precious space by leaving these items in the ground which is a negative environmental impact. Our clean rubble landfill is much different than this because it sorts and recycles these items so that they can be used again. This gives the clean rubble landfill an eco-friendly advantage because it is generating a positive environmental impact via recycling and re-use of materials that would otherwise be left in a hole in the ground.
                • Does your clean rubble landfill except metal, copper or aluminum?

We do however have a sister company that will gladly pay you to accept and recycle your steel, metal, aluminum, copper, stainless steel or any ferrous or non-ferrous materials.
