[GreenYes] Re: value of reuse building materials

Title: [GreenYes] Re: value of reuse building materials

I am quoting my own direct survey results,
HfH ReStore project by others which was funded by Florida DEP,
and US EPA report which is unreleased at this time - as noted in each instance.

I can send my own results summary to you.

The Florida study should be be on-line but was funded under FDEP Innovative Grants Program - they have a website, PI was Howard Heck.

The EPA report I am pretty sure I am not at liberty to redistribute until offically released.
