In the San Francisco Bay Area, many residents take pride in recycling used materials to make their environment a cleaner, more eco-friendly place. Many businesses can participate too, especially by recycling materials from commercial construction and demolition. To learn more about the construction and demolition recycling services that Peninsula Hauling & Demo can offer your business, read this article.
Facts about Construction and Demolition Recycling
In the state of California, a shocking 30 percent of landfill waste is comprised of construction and demolition materials. According to research conducted by the state of California, the construction of an average home in California generates approximately 8.5 pounds of construction waste per square foot. For a 2,000 square foot house, that amounts to 17,000 pounds of waste. A commercial building of around 7,500 square feet can produce more than 110 tons of waste.
Benefits of Construction and Demolition Recycling
Recycling just 75 percent of the waste that results from the construction of a commercial building in California can reduce CO2 emissions by almost 21 metric tons. Thinking about it another way, that’s like taking four cars off of the road for a year—and that’s just one building. Imagine the impact if every commercial construction or demolition site made recycling a priority.
Recyclable Materials at a Construction or Demolition Site
Wood accounts for most of the construction waste generated from building a home. Fortunately, Peninsula Hauling & Demo can recycle wood, waste papers, plastics, metals, concrete, and yard wastes. No matter the size or location, Peninsula Hauling & Demo can haul materials to a place where they can be recycled, and even perform demolishing services if you need them.

Did you know that between 75 and 90 percent of a home is recyclable? If you are planning a demolition, make sure it’s a green demolition by contacting Peninsula Hauling & Demo. Continue reading to learn more about the housing materials that can be recycled and the benefits of doing so.
Recycling Housing Materials
In many cases, the majority of the materials that make up a home can be recycled. Peninsula Hauling & Demo can recycle wood, yard wastes, waste papers, plastics, concrete, and metal for you, and will even donate any old clothes, furniture, appliances, and other miscellaneous items to charity. We are proud to say that, on average, 90 percent of the materials we pick up are diverted away from landfills.
Re-Using Housing Materials
Peninsula Hauling & Demo also offers building deconstruction services, where useful materials are removed before the physical structure is demolished. These materials can be used in a future construction project, either at the same location or a different one. If you want to save plumbing, toilets, lighting, doors, rocks, marbles, security vaults, garage doors, lumbar, and more, Peninsula Hauling & Demo can do it for you. Salvaging materials can help save you money come tax season, too.
How Recycling Housing Materials Helps the Environment
More than 250,000 homes are torn down in the United States every year. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), more than one billion board-feet of timber are taken to the landfill as a result of these demolitions. That’s enough to construct tens of thousands of houses. In fact, the Deconstruction Institute says that collecting one year’s worth of demolition materials be enough to construct a 30-foot high, 30-foot wide wall completely around the border of the continental United States.
