New Glasgow High School

The New Glasgow Junior High school at Albert and Lorne Streets in New Glasgow has been demolished to make room for a new primary to grade 8 facility. The old school complex had three buildings connected by pedways and included a former junior high, high school, with an annex. Prior to demolition NS Lands managed the disposal of regulated wastes. This project included approximately 5000 tonnes of asbestos. Also included in the disposal plan were mercury switches, pcb based lighting ballasts, nuclear waste in the form of fire detectors and waste oil. The disposal of these materials was completed in a timely manner (four weeks) with strict adherence to Health & Safety Labour standards as well as stringent Environmental protection protocols.
