Recycling of Metal Buildings

    Specialized in the demolition of steel structures for many years DEMCO has tried to make the reuse of materials the main focus. Of the many steel components from a demolition project, a vast quantity can be reused. The energy required to forge steel in a furnace is high and this would make recycling the second choice after reuse.

     The removal of steel corrugated siding and roofing material was reused at many locations throughout the lower mainland. Some of the uses included the original applications but others were somewhat modified from fences to movie sets in the film industry.          wpe19.jpg (8134 bytes)
