When you’re doing any sort of remodel try to keep as much stuff out of the landfill as you can. Home improvements account for a huge amount that go into our landfills. If you’re taking out old cabinets try and reuse them somewhere in your house. When we redid our kitchen we put the old cabinets into our basement. We saved thousands of dollars and I love them in the basement.
If you can’t reuse something, see if there’s a home reuse store in your area or have a garage sale. We did a deconstruction instead of demolition. It wasn’t that much more work and we kept a lot out of the landfill doing it that way.
