Demolitions of homes built after 1970 are expected to increase in Metro Vancouver. This study aims to advance zero waste strategies in Metro Vancouver by examining the recycling and reuse potential of materials found in single-family homes built after 1970. The study focuses mostly on the diversion potential of wood materials because they make up the highest share of the regional construction and demolition waste stream by weight.
