AT ALL TIMES: SAFETY FIRST!

30 minute safety and instructions 7:30am - 8:00am

8:00am - 12:00pm dismante car seats.


THE SAFETY OF YOU AND THOSE AROUND YOU IS OUR PRIMARY CONCERN.

Sort @ all stages

Separate plastic, metal and paper throughout deconstruction.

Stage 1 Going to the Dogs https://www.maricopa.gov/3560/Animal-Care-and-Control

Remove all fabric, padding, and straps. Quilted fabric becomes bedding +/or chew toys for the animals.

It may be necessary/efficient to cut some straps; however, long straps (i.e., tethers) make free leashes

Stage 2 Waste Not, Want Not

We've repurposed long straps and plastic-metal fasteners with both male & female components.

MINIMIZE WASTE Cut as close as you can safely - Short strap pieces are waste as is any soft foam :(


Stage 3 Make a Home Earth Friendly Building Materials, LLC http://www.efbm.com


Clean Polystyrene foam (rigid foam) will be recycled into Earth Friendly Block

Stage 4 Hand me a tool

Remove any metal (or plastic) fasteners with the hand tools provided.

Be meticulous. Get it down to the base plastic shell, but if it's smaller than a nickel it can stay.

Stage 5 Boyd's Power Center

Tim Taylor from Tool Time would love to work this stage. We utilize an assortment of power tools to separate remaining metal from the plastic shell.

Stage 6 Clean Up We're done when the area is cleaner than when we arrived!
