[GreenYes] Re: [Greenyes Digest] V3 #1Mobile Home ADF/ARF
A local mobile home salvage company here in NC called 'salvage king" (www.thesalvageking.com> has estimated that the real cost of dismantling and recycling a mobile home is about $900, he also contacted various people in NC's large mobile home industry who of course oppose an ADF. Nonetheless he is working on this & I have forwarded your ADF interests to him. Further, he indicates that one must not forget the smoke detectors and mercury switch tstats when addressing the issue of mobile home dismantling/decon. once you've dismantled a number of these, presto you have rad waste & mercury waste, additional disposal expenses that were overlooked in most equations.
