Loading the bricks

Demolishing the wall

30 July 2013

A while ago they were demolishing the old wall of the apartment block I’m living in. To my surprise an old lady came by and started cleaning all the bricks from the mortar and separating them from the chunks of debris. Later a man came with a truck and they started loading all the clean bricks on the truck.

I’m curious what social/cultural thing lies behind this.┬áBack home some cop would give you a fine for this or some construction company would claim the debris and use it.
