Waste Handling

Construction is inherently a resource consumptive process, and waste from building is one of the largest contributors to the solid waste stream. We strive to minimize waste on jobs from the outset by taking the time to make very accurate materials estimates. We also attempt to make choices, when possible, of materials that will harm the environment least when they do inevitable become waste.

We routinely take reusable building materials salvaged from our remodeling jobs to the REStore, a non profit business that resells these items. Other waste is separated so that recyclable materials can be recovered. Scrap wood is often put to use for home heating. The resulting reduced burden upon landfills and incinerators puts less stress on the environment.
