Common Recyclable Remodeling Materials

Last updated 5 years ago

Taking down a house reveals everything inside, from left-behind items to reusable components involved in various systems. Dumpster rentals are a great way to contain the large amount of recyclable debris and waste generated in a project such as deconstructing or demolishing a home. Read on to learn about some of the many reusable materials that become available during a home’s demolition:

Housing Materials

Deconstructing a home rather than demolishing it outright tends to yield a more efficient net of recyclables, because drywall, masonry, and concrete are valuable reusable materials. This aids in green building construction as well as sustainability for the community as a whole.

Houses are composed largely of wood, which can be repurposed if it remains in good condition, or broken down and recycled by your dumpster rental service. Yet one of the prize components inside a home is its plumbing system, whose copper pipes and fittings can be melted down into raw material. Steel is an especially valuable commodity, as it is much easier and more economical to recycle than it is to manufacture. While many dumpster rental companies can sort materials for you, you might consider using multiple dedicated dumpsters for a home deconstruction.

Contents of a Home

Many times homes are cleaned out before they are demolished, but if an abandoned home is left full, there can often be plenty of recyclable material among the waste inside. Paper goods, appliances, electronics, and other products can all be either reused or recycled.
