Construction & Demolition Recycling
Dem-Con Recovery & Recycling was established in 1999 as one of the first facilities in the Twin Cities to
recycle mixed construction debris. Over the past decade, processes have improved and currently,
the facility has been expanded to nearly 40,000 sq. ft. of covered floor space dedicated to
construction and demolition recovery. This facility was designed to be a comprehensive service center that
accepts a wide range of materials.
The building handles demolition, construction, and mixed solid waste (household trash). Both mechanical
and manual separation techniques are used and result in high quality materials being sent to end
markets. The equipment allows materials to be sorted during the process with a maximum of 16 line
workers recovering ferrous and nonferrous metals, aggregate, cardboard, wood and ADC (alternative daily cover).
In addition, Dem-Con recycles ceiling tiles and is an Armstrong Certified C&D processor in Minnesota.
Nearly 10,000 sq. ft. is dedicated to deliver fuel to the waste to energy market including facilities in
Mankato and Redwing. The company continues to explore opportunities and markets for additional recovery opportunities.
The facility incorporates the latest technology and strategies available in the market for recovery of
construction materials. Monthly recovery numbers are available to all haulers that use our facility for the
purpose of meeting LEED Green Building Certification and B3 State of Minnesota Sustainable Building Guidelines (B3-MSBG).
Dem-Con is proud to be certified by the Recycling Certification Institute. This 3rd party certification
ensures our customers that Dem-Con’s recycling numbers are real, attainable, and accurate.
An additional LEED credit (1 point for recycling numbers, 1 point for bringing material to a registered facility) are available for haulers that utilize our facility.
