...reuse and green jobs in the sustainable city
Today I had the opportunity to visit an exciting project a partner is working on. That partner, Humanim, is an NGO dedicated to workforce development and social enterprise. Their DETAILS program provides job training and employment for people in the local community with barriers to employment. They deconstruct vacant buildings and process the materials for resale and reuse. This diverts these waste streams from landfills (and avoids them being buried onsite) and converts these materials from a waste to a resource.
DETAILS is presently under contract with Baltimore City to deconstruct a block of row homes on Eager Street.
