The average house takes three to five days to clear. We work from the roof down, hand stripping the salvage materials. Our target is to recycle 80%, sorting it into green waste for mulching, concrete for crushing, metal and glass for recycling etc. It is then removed from the site, and usually as little as only 20% of the demolition material is used for general landfill.
Before we start, we introduce ourselves to the neighbours, informing them of our methods and time frames also answering any questions they may have. We aim to do everything possible to complete the project, quickly, cleanly, and with as little inconvenience to surrounding occupants as possible.
