Beacon was contracted by the MEDEP to oversee the removal of railroad ties and restoration of a piece of abandoned property located in Hermon, Maine. Over the course of one month, approximately 1,125 tons of discarded rail ties, approximately 8 tons of scrap metal, and 0.5 ton of tires were removed from the property. Once the materials were removed, the site was regraded and grass seed and hay were placed on the property.
