When you deconstruct a building there is the opportunity to salvage valuable resources like lumber or fixtures. However, when you demolish a building you end up with a mix of materials that might have been recyclable, but no longer can be diverted from waste.
Material from the construction, demolition and renovation of buildings does not have to all end up going to the landfill. Taking some time to research before starting on your project to determine what is feasible within your budget.
The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) has strict procedures when dealing with drywall disposal at our landfill.
