In Florida, areas often become overrun with invasive, non-native species such as Melaleuca, Cottonwood, Australian Pine, and Brazilian Pepper. Without proper maintenance, these exotics will multiply and threaten the overall health surrounding vegetation. In addition, removal of exotics it typically a condition of development approval in many counties and municipalities. R3 is experienced in identifying exotic growth and removing exotics according to statewide regulations and without harming native or protected species. We hand cut such exotics, apply herbicides to stumps to prevent re-growth, and grind the waste for eventual burning in co-generation plants.
R3 recently completed remediation of a HAZMAT contaminated site in Dania Beach, Florida. The project scope included remediation of 30,000 cubic yards of material across a 10 acre area. Excavation and manipulation of soils was required to a depth of up to 18 feet.
During part of a recent project in West Palm Beach, Florida, R3 reclaimed all soils (approx. 250,000 tons) to a depth of 15 feet, de-watered the entire site, screened all solid waste from reclaimed soils, separated all C&D material from the remaining solid waste and sorted the remaining C&D material into multiple classes for recycling.
