Reclaimed materials during demolition
We're getting ready to do demolition on the property to build a new house. The house is pretty run down, but it has decent items in it, such as hardwood floors in good shape, doors, cabinets in ok shape, then there is obviously copper piping, etc.
Has anyone done anything in terms of having someone come in to recover any of the materials, or do most people just let the demolition contractor get rid of the waste? I always hear of reclaimed floors, and copper being sold to metal recycling places, but I have no idea whether any of that is feasible or how one would go about getting that done.
Any insights or suggestions would be very welcome.
