Live Green; Reduce Waste by Reusing Recycled Materials

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

With more and more waste being produced landfill space is decreasing by the minute in the United States. Construction and demolition waste currently takes 25 percent to 30 percent of area landfill space. The thing here is that the majority of construction and demolition waste contains materials that can be recycled and reused.

Instead of sending these usable materials to the landfill it would make more sense to recycle and reuses such materials for future buildings. That is exactly what ReSource, a Colorado based company has come up with. Working like a thrift store for construction products ReSource accepts donations of reusable building materials, Resource is one way to decrease this throw away factor construction and demolition waste. The accepted materials are then sold for home projects at 50 percent to 90 percent below retail cost.
