Salt Lake's Habitat for Humanity is Salvaging Materials from Homes Set for Demolition in Freeway Expansion

January 16, 2019

As part of Utah Department of Transportation's I-15 northbound widening project, 27 houses in Midvale are scheduled for demolition — something that used to result in a lot of wasted resources. But since Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity partnered with UDOT, some of those resources are being put to better use than sitting in a landfill. "It's a green concept, it's a recycling concept, it helps our housing," said Ed Blake, CEO of Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity. "It creates a situation where we don't have so much in our landfill, so it's a win all the way around."
