The house was gutted right back to the brick, which usually fills a couple of bins that get hauled off to the dump. However they did it carefully:

Limiting waste and reducing fuel usage is very important to us, so our whole team took care to strip things down neatly and pack everything carefully into a single dumpster. That’s right, we only filled one big dumpster for the entire demolition process! Typically, major renovation demolition for a home can fill dozens of dumpsters, adding cost to the project and burning more fuel to transport each one to landfill. We also found new uses for reusable items – for example, one of our new neighbours took all the interior doors to repurpose as a room divider for an interior design project.
