Contractors Already Recycling Structural Steel from WTC

The Daily News reports that scrap yards in Newark and Jersey City are cutting up structural steel from the World Trade Center and sending it on to manufacturing plants as far away as South Korea. Some relatives of victims of the terrorist are outraged, as expected. According to the article, almost 160,000 tons of steel has been removed from the World Trade Center site so far.

The article points out the difficulty of the issues involved in this aspect of the recovery process:

  • How big a portion of the debris from the World Trade Center ought to be saved?
  • Should the rest of the salvaged material be recycled?
  • How long should the material bound for recycling be kept for forensic analysis?
