So often during renovations, cabinetry, plumbing and hardware used to be thrown into a dumpster and driven off to the nearest dump. Over the years, different recycling opportunities have risen that have changed the way we deal with construction waste:
♻️ Clean woods are ground into landscape mulches/products.
♻️ Mixed woods get ground up for use as biofuel for greenhouses or the agriculture industry.
♻️ Concrete and asphalt are processed into aggregate products for use in local construction projects.
♻️ Cardboard and metals are sent to specialized local recyclers to be further processed into finished products.
