    substitutionaryTHINKING"A 'repurpose' idea for your Highway Median Cable would be to substitute it for re-bar in concrete.  Several years ago I used to own a construction company, and we had gotten some of this highway cable and used it in footings on large grain bins. It was fabulous!  We poured a 42' diameter footing for a large grain bin. There was a big gulley washer storm some of the fill washed out from under the footing that had the bin full of corn on top of it.  There was a 6' undercut and not one crack in the concrete.  All we did was pump new concrete under the bin and all was back like new.  Great Great stuff!" - David Urban

    repurposedINBOX"I work in the Resilience and Sustainable Design group at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. I am looking to divert a 10,000 SF EPDM Roof Membrane from landfill. The roof is mechanically fastened and the overall building is scheduled for demolition later this year. repurposedMATERIALS was mentioned as a potential vendor for recycling or re-use. I wanted to confirm that this is a material stream that you accept and wanted to get a sense of the cost." - Miriam
