What do they do with all the debris?

For the past two years, travelers driving past St. Francis on I-65 have seen the new patient tower grow – literally – from the ground up. They’ve also seen the significant debris and waste that accumulate as part of the construction process. But what happens to all that debris?

St. Francis is proud to report that it recycles a portion of the debris. Metals, paper, cardboard boxes and packing materials are regularly recycled. In addition, asphalt that is removed is milled up, crushed and sent back to an asphalt plant to be re-used.
