Recycling wasted materials from your job site can save you money when you’re moving from one location to the next. For a lot of contractors and people taking on multiple DIY projects a year, recycling and upcycling wood and other materials can make a huge difference on the impact a job has on the wallet. Even if you aren’t the kind of person that spends swaths of time worrying about sea levels, air quality, or the detriment of landfills—everyone worries about how much something will cost them!
A big part of cutting down on reoccurring costs is to deconstruct before a job starts rather than demolition. There will most likely be plenty of materials that can be used in the next (or current) job rather than being burned or sent off to spend the rest of time in a landfill. You save money on new materials, pay less on removal and hauling fees as well as lowering or eliminating landfill fees depending on where you are working. In some cases, you can even sell off materials that you have taken down during deconstruction rather than demolition. You can sell materials like concrete, plastics, lumber, masonry and more to recycling plants and programs—though unless you are working on very large sites with exceedingly large volumes.
