A old church building scheduled for demolition is one of three structures owned by the City of Union that will be cleaned of asbestos and lead under a contract awarded by Union City Council Tuesday evening.
Council voted unanimously to award the contract for the removal and disposal of the materials to JB Russell & Son Construction for $8,180. The company will remove asbestos and materials with lead from the Tosch’s Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant digester, the Meng Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant digester and the former St. Matthews Apostolic Church building.
In its bid, the company states it will remove and dispose of the window glazing compound, roofing tar and boiler gasket at the Tosch Creek facility ($1,955); the roofing tar and exterior block wall filler and a gray exterior roof ladder from the Meng Creek facility ($2,950); and the drywall joint compound containing asbestos and window glazing compound containing asbestos from the former St. Matthews Apostolic Church at 111 Hillside Drive, then demolish the building and cover the disturbed areas with grass and mulch ($3,275).
All the materials will be disposed of at the Republic Services Wildcat Landfill off S.C. 49 West in Cross Keys. The tipping fees for the disposal of the materials will be paid by the city.
