Post-quake ChCh gets into recycling
Fri, 24 Aug 2012 7:00p.m.
You've seen the images on TV, but until you see Christchurch’s CBD in person it's impossible to comprehend the sheer scale of destruction, to see just how much of the city centre has gone.
Entire blocks of the central city sit empty.
New views and vistas have opened up. Right through town 733 buildings have come down, with around 60 yet to fall.
So where is all the rubble going? Well, initially a lot of it went straight to the tip. In the last year however, other, greener avenues have opened up.
Now the buzzwords are re-cover, re-use, recycle, and even re-claim.
