We generate approximately 136 million tons of waste every year from construction projects. That’s almost half of our country’s solid waste. Green demolition is the demolition of a building or structure so that as much of it can be recycled as possible.
Green demolition is now mandatory in many cities across the country and the list is growing. All of the following can be recycled and used again in other projects:
- Wood floors and beams
- Windows and doors
- Fixtures and appliances
- Tiles and carpeting
- Aluminum siding
- Roofing materials
Green Demolition takes longer and cost more but a lot of the cost can be offset by selling your recycled materials. In fact some people pay a premium for certain vintage bricks, doors, windows, tiles, and wood.
