    The hidden gem in this idea is the opportunity for jobs. Sorting and merchandising used goods is time consuming and requires a fair amount of personnel. Make this enterprise "for-profit", and give people good jobs! Habitat for Humanity's Restore is a great model but it is run mostly by volunteers and profits fund their building projects. Transfer station stores can put that money into a fleet of well paid workers instead.

    The Draft Greenest City Action Plan includes an action to develop a building deconstruction policy. The City is piloting a building deconstruction project and is exploring options for an incentive program to encourage deconstruction.
