Sorting Removed Bricks – Disposal and/or Repurposing Projects

If you have a significantly sized tear down project you will most likely need to sort bricks for multiple purposes. Some may be disposed of, and if so, you need to check with your municipality to see if there are any local ordinances dealing with brick removal. In the process, you may find that there is a local materials exchange program in place, at which point keeping the bricks in relatively good condition is important. Having a dedicated bin for them will help. You may also consider repurposing a number of the bricks as a component of the very same renovation project you’re undertaking, or for an entirely new one altogether. For example, old bricks can be repurposed to make pathways, driveways, fences, swimming pool trim and grottos, and even ovens. There are a wide variety of outdoor and indoor constructs to be made from repurposed brick. And If you don’t need it, some other contractor in your area does, and may be willing to pay a pretty penny for the sturdy building material. Once again, setting aside a bin to collect and transport the bricks for this purpose is a great idea.
