is the process of carefully sourcing destinations for each building material and component that will need to be permanently removed during alterations. In contrast to demolition, where dumpsters of debris are contracted to go to the nearest waste facility, effectively adding to our landfill problem, 100% of the materials from this site will go to facilities and partners that will recycle and upcycle them to extend their usable life and divert them from NYC's waste stream. Another great perk is that all items that can be donated to a partner 501(c)3 charitable organization, qualify for tax deductions to property owners, often offsetting any additional cost of deconstruction and in many cases saving money over demolition.

We want these ideas to spread to everyone undertaking a renovation project in NYC !
