Washington, USA - A Great Loss: I know of a place where 1000 homes have recently been demolished/destroyed. A summary of our loss:
125,000,000 pounds of building materials are now in the landfill
$3,500,000 worth of reclaimed building materials destroyed
500,000+ bricks thrown away
240,000 2x4's buried in the landfill
95,000 sq ft of good wood flooring splintered and wasted
12,000 doors tossed.
1000 opportunities lost
100 workers remain unemployed
1 person that seems to have noticed ...
