RE: Reuse of wood from demolition



Reuse is what we all should strive for... BUT know what you getting.  Be
careful of treated wood products they can contain metals or
pentachlorophenol treated wood can contain hexachlorobenzene or dioxin
at very  high levels.  Stay tuned for a nasty story coming out in the
near future.

Subject: Reuse of wood from demolition


Greetings:

I have had a request for information on successful examples of
micro-enterprise businesses or non-profits (e.g. schools) that use wood
waste from construction and demolition sites to make marketable products
in
urban areas.

I know that reuse of wood from the demolition of old barns and factories
is
becoming big business, but this person is looking for examples of
small-scale projects that don't necessarily involve "old" wood.

Thank you for your assistance!
