The removal of  USG’s historic rock bin located one mile offshore from Alabaster in Lake Huron has been completed, with work done by Ryba Marine Construction of Cheboygan.

“While our marine bin has been a familiar waypoint on the Lake Huron shoreline for many decades, it has been out of use since 2002,” said Matt Craig, USG’s plant manager. “For safety reasons, it was time to deconstruct the building.”
