Hurricane Sandy left mountains of debris in its wake along the Jersey Shore’s Atlantic Coast. Conti Federal removed over three million cubic yards of debris in the first three months.Back to All
Conti Federal provided emergency response cleanup services to restore roads and properties to safety following this devastating storm. The project team rapidly deployed staging techniques to quickly and efficiently remove debris from over 30 New Jersey municipalities. The contract resulted in three million cubic yards of vegetative green waste, putrescent municipal solid waste, electronic waste, and household hazardous waste to be cleared from roads and properties in the first few months. The team was awarded a follow-on contract to continue work for one year.
The scope of work required the removal, staging, sorting, and recycling of large amounts of disaster-generated debris. Recycling and material separation occurred at point of pickup with additional segregation at temporary debris storage and reduction sites. The team used volume reduction techniques to minimize the debris disposed in landfills and recycling facilities.
An Automated Debris Management System (ADMS) was used to manage weight ticketing and accounting. Debris was removed and transported using heavy equipment and oversized loads within New Jersey and across state boundaries by A901-licensed firms. The team worked long hours, seven days per week, to return the environment to clean and safe conditions for New Jersey residents and businesses.
