In the greater Los Angeles/Orange County areas, recycling 75% of all demolition debris is required by most cities. Some cities are even higher. When we perform our work, we always source-separate the material on site to be hauled off to different facilities. We will typically separate metal, asphalt, concrete, wood, green waste, drywall, wiring and piping. The remaining debris will be comingled and hauled off to a transfer station, where they will sort through the material and pull out potential recycled material. When Demolition Services provides estimates for demolition work, we always factor in the value of potential recycled materials. We have extensive experience in knowing the value of recycled material. Currently insulation is one of the few materials that are not being recycled.
At Demolition Services we can create a recycling specification that includes a goal or target for recycling sets an expectation that materials should be diverted from disposal. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the method or value of recycled materials.
