Deconstructing Deconstruction in Connecticut
Construction projects can create a significant amount of waste, filling up dumpsters and costing money in tipping fees. However, there are a number of outlets that exist for usable building materials extracted from a site before demolition begins. Common casualties of construction, such as usable furniture, fixtures like cabinets and toilets, lumber and windows and doors, can be reclaimed for reuse. In many cases deconstructing a building and donating usable items to non-profit reuse centers yields a higher labor cost, but decreases disposal costs. Projects may also be able to receive tax deductions for donated materials!

General contractors and real estate agents in Connecticut are encouraged to join Demystifying Deconstruction, a webinar hosted by the Center for EcoTechnology (CET). CET will provide an overview of deconstruction and C&D recycling best practices and underline the no-cost technical assistance available to general contractors. Attendees will also hear from Urban Miners, a company with over a decade of consulting and management experience in deconstruction and materials reuse.

Attendees will leave the webinar inspired by the deconstruction success stories presented. Come prepared to decrease your carbon footprint!
