Making Old New Again: Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore Deconstruction Services

December 20, 2012

We look at the ReStore Deconstruction program which repurposes the construction materials from homes set to be demolished rather than just sending the materials to the landfill.

Everybody seems to be more concerned about the environment these days. Keeping as much waste out of landfills as possible is one step towards preserving our resources. What happens when someone tears down a house to make way for a new one?

As part of our ongoing reporting project with broadcast students at Johnson County Community College, we take a closer look at how a non-profit group called Habitat ReStore is finding new ways to recycle old materials that would have been destined for the landfill.
