The Demolition Man has a exclusive process of cleaning as we work. Many Massachusetts Demolition Companies destroy everything in their path of site creating huge amounts of waste and debris virtually stopping your ability to enjoy your home. The Demolition Man crew are trained and committed to cleaning every speck of dust they create while safely removing your old materials. The Demolition Man also believes very strongly in recycling every possible piece of waste created and has partnered with the most efficient recycling plant in New England.
With state of the art equipment imported from the Netherlands, designed especially for us, we are able to recycle construction and demolition material efficiently. We also can provide recycling reports and waste management plans that are compatible with LEED and MA CHPS requirements. We have qualified employees that visually inspect each individual load and estimate the recycling percentage based on tonnage.
Aggregate, Brick & Concrete (ABC)
Crushed to a 6″ minus and used for road base/clean fill. This material is crushed with our machine and used on our site in Westborough and Hopkinton.Wood. “A” – Clean, unpainted, unstained wood is shipped to a plant where it is chipped to a 2″ minus product. It is then used for extra clean fuel to create steam at a Bio Mass Power Plant. We also work with a company that re manufactures the wood in to bark mulch. “B” – Painted and stained wood is also shipped out and chipped to a 2″ minus product and then used as fuel to create steam at a Bio Mass Power plant, or it is re manufactured into particle board.• Note: A significant portion of wood is not clean enough to re manufacture, therefore, it is sent to Bio Mass Power Plants for energy recovery. These power plants are not the same as a municipal waste combustor (incinerator). The extreme heat produces very little ash compared to your typical incinerator. The small amount of ash produced from these power plants is clean enough to be used as clean fill and composting. Municipal waste combustors, on the other hand, produce about 10% ash which goes to a land fill. Currently, this is the best way to recycle wood and is acceptable for LEED certification.
Light Iron – shredded and melted down to create new steel.
Aluminum – smelted into new aluminum.
Wire – chipped to obtain copper and mainly shipped overseas.
Copper – used to make new copper items.
Baled and shipped to paper mills all over the world where it is made in to paper towels, tissue, and cardboard box liners.
Cleaned and shipped to plants for grinding to be reused as new asphalt products or cement kilns.
Cleaned and shipped to be made into new wallboard.

Carpet, Ceiling Tile, and Used Gypsum Drywall
These materials can be recycled but require special handling procedures that start at the job site. The Demolition Man sends 90% or more of our remaining trash to incinerators to be burned and create electricity. This reduces our country’s dependency on foreign oil and decreases the use of less environmentally sound power generation methods.
