Can mainstream green industrial demolition increase jobs?
Elder Demolition
Traditional demolition results in tremendous amounts of trash. The average 2,500-square-foot home, for instance, can create 25 tons of refuse. Hoping to minimize their landfill contributions, some demolition contractors have chosen to specialize in green demolition, an approach that seeks to reuse as much as possible. Oftentimes, green commercial, residential and industrial demolition contractors set the minimum goalpost for material sent to the landfill at 25 percent, meaning just a quarter of the building's materials will be thrown away in the end. 75 percent of the structure is reused, recycled or repurposed.

This loss could lead to reduced productivity, delayed deposits or payments, key tasks missed completely, and more. So how do we fix this issue and somehow capture that knowledge?
