Recycled runways leave legacy and cash prizes
Recycled Materials Company (RMC) of California launched a contest at www.RecycleElToro.com on February 2, 2007, offering cash prizes, personal recognition and more to the individual who can “Name That Stone”. The winner must submit the most creative name for the large concrete landscape stone resulting from El Toro Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) runways which will be broken and re-used in many areas of the El Toro re-development.
The “Name That Stone” contest will end March 2, 2007. The winner will be announced on April 2, 2007. Contest entrants can be added to RMC of California’s web alert system to receive e-mail updates about the recycling of El Toro MCAS which will include opportunities to purchase or win unique “Piece of El Toro” displays containing remnants of the runways.
RMC of California will remove and recycle 3.5 million tons of concrete and asphalt to be re-used on-site. The recycle process may take eight years to complete. Sustainability is a key goal of this re-development project. All materials will be re-used on-site by the developer for private development projects including more than 3,400 homes and various commercial sites.
