Asked by Aaron Fay from North Burbs Chicago



I’m an Environmental Science teacher at a high school north of Chicago. I’m interested in exposing my students to practical reuse of materials and how recycling can be a business opportunity as well as environmental.

Is the process of dismantling barns something that is accessible for students? I’m not really interested in dismantling the whole barn, just learning how the process is done and how the business of selling salvage lumber works.

I have some spare time (summer perk) and would be willing to volunteer so that I could learn for my students. Thank You for you time.
