What was once a sturdy school is now a mere pile of bricks, cement and metal.
Demolition of the Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn Middle School was completed last week. The process of removing the rubble started immediately and was expected to take approximately three weeks, according to Boyd Jones project manager Mark Pfister.
"They'll recycle what they can. They're charged by tonnage and want to take as little to the landfill as possible," he explained. "It's a lot to clean up. It's basically the worst mess you could ever imagine."
