I am thoroughly disappointed by the amount of waste created by modern methods of building demolition. I saw a photo recently of a demolition project from the 1960s, with a Teperman Wrecking sign in front that read "All Materials For Sale" and had a phone number for the site foreman. No machines were used, and the value of almost all reusable materials was captured. This approach also provided an opportunity for items of an artistic or nostalgic nature with little or no scrap value to be retained rather than destroyed. I laud Vancouver for their efforts in this direction.
