Choosing Deconstruction Services: A Step Towards a Sustainable Future

When it comes to renovating or dismantling a structure, the traditional method is demolition. However, there's a more sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative called deconstruction. At Better Futures Minnesota, we advocate for deconstruction over demolition for several compelling reasons, with the first being its positive impact on the environment and our community.

The Environmental Perspective

Demolition has long been the go-to method for clearing out old buildings, but it comes with a significant environmental cost. The process often results in a large amount of waste, with more than 90% ending up in our landfills. Furthermore, demolition can have adverse effects on groundwater, contaminating it with hazardous materials.

Deconstruction, on the other hand, is a more environmentally friendly approach. By carefully dismantling a structure, we ensure that materials are salvaged, reused, and resold at our ReUse Warehouse Store. This not only reduces the amount of waste heading to landfills but also conserves resources by giving materials a second life. The environmental benefits are clear: less waste, less pollution, and a smaller carbon footprint.
