Devens Recycling In The Community

Through a partnership with the Town of Bedford, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell has acquired nearly three acres of land and a historic farmhouse located at 130 North Road in Bedford. HFHGL plans to renovate the existing house, and build seven new affordable homes, all of which will be designated for deserving, low-income families. To date, this is the largest project HFHGL has ever undertaken.

In addition, it is the first HFHGL project to incorporate eco-friendly, “green” building design and techniques. As part of HFHGL’s green building initiative, the entire neighborhood is slated to undergo certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™. LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of green buildings. Compared to conventional construction, building to certain LEED standards could increase the home’s energy efficiency by as much as 40 percent and significantly decrease annual energy bills.

Knowing how important energy conservation is to affordable housing, when the HFHGL asked for support from Devens Recycling Center to continue its mission of building respectable, affordable housing in Bedford, MA, Devens Recycling Center did not hesitate to provide FREE New Construction and Demolition Recycling Services for such a worthwhile cause. Sorrentino Trucking provided the containers and hauling services. To date, we have recycled almost 50 Tons New Construction Scrap and Demolition Debris from the Bedford site with more coming in every day.

This year, Habitat for Humanity International is celebrating 25 years of dedicated service to the cause of eliminating poverty housing. We are proud to be a sponsor of such a worthwhile project and encourage others to do the same. This is a great opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
