Well okay, that's going a bit far there.  Still I'll call it a step in the right direction.

It was relatively warm up here at Tanglewood on Christmas day, so after a nice leisurely morning doing all of the standard Christmasy stuff I decided I'd make use of the nicer weather to do some outside cleanup work.  One thing on that list was taking care of the old ICFs leftover from Tanglewood's construction.

Honestly the crews had done a pretty good job of not generating much waste, though I had taken some of the more brittle and busted ones up years ago when I was cleaning up in the fall of 2011.  I'd stashed some pieces I thought might be useful later up by the leach field though, covering them up with a couple of tarps and carefully weighing them down so they wouldn't move  around.

However, after 6 years they had become uncovered and hence were subject to sunlight and UV degradation.  ICFs work great unless they are exposed to sunlight and UV radiation over a long period of time, in which case they get 'crumbly' and no longer all that trustworthy.  I had looked at that pile a couple of times over the course of the summer and finally decided to get them to the recycler.....they'd been there more than long enough and there weren't any obvious projects coming that would need them, so it was time to get rid of them.

So it's all packed into the back of the SUV (her name is Leisha by the way) and will get taken down to the recycler tomorrow.

So mote it be!

This is about one third of the ICFs I was getting rid of. I hadn't thought to take any pics until I had most of it stashed in the truck.
A squirrel had used this cluster of ICFs for a midden apparently.

Six years! It’s hard to believe the time has flown by so, since I started reading your blog while you were under construction!
