THE CO-OP demolition continues as a back hoe tears off parts of the building's east wall and roof yesterday.

THE CO-OP building shrank a bit more yesterday as a backhoe continued biting through its east side, dropping pieces of metal in one pile and wood in another.

The project is expected to take between four to six weeks, said backhoe operator Stuart Austen of Western Thermal Demolition.

Tearing down the concrete is about 35 per cent of the work and a pulverizer will be used to chew it up, he said, adding the pulverizer has another part on it that will pull down metal.

A lot of the torn down wood and metal will be salvaged and recycled.
