    The only aspect the recyclers ever arrive at is Mix with Concrete, is fine until have to break it out or drill it then release the dust again, even worse to remove aged FBGLS reinforced concrete as full of hail and as dries out or degrades releases the hairs.

    1)You might talk to the OEM (blade manufacturer) and ask them how they would part them into sections.
    2)The engineering staff of the company that's tearing these units out may also have some ideas on destroying them.
    3)Ship yards use some very high pressure water blasting equipment that should cut the glass.

    I didn't take the job and I never found out what they did about moving them. I would like an opportunity to try different methods out and see what would work. I would not entertain doing it manually.
