A months-long demolition of the Kimberly-Clark pulp and paper mill has started.

The work wasn’t visible Monday. Some workers were on top of one roof, and big booming sounds could be heard on the Port Gardner side of the mill.

Kimberly-Clark spokesman Bob Brand said: “I’m told that most of the current activity wouldn’t be visible from the street side of the mill but that work is underway. Still targeting to have the demo work completed by the end of the first quarter of next year.”
