In the United States alone, construction and demolition debris accounts for 30% of all solid waste produced. Thus, the Department of Public Health promotes the responsible separation and recycling of construction and demolition debris to protect the environment.


Midwest Wrecking Company adheres to the highest standards of the Construction and Demolition Site Waste Recycling Ordinance, which entails:

  • Keeping track of the amount of debris generated on our project sites
  • Recycling at least 50% of the recyclable debris generated on a job site
  • Submitting required recycling compliance forms at the end of each project, along with proper paperwork from the recycling or waste hauling facility


  • We’re happy to do a walk-through of your site and submit an estimate of services according to your specifications. We take pride in providing accurate estimates of all projects.

Coordination Process

  • We’ll assign a project manager, foreman, and laborers uniquely equipped to perform your project and ensure it’s completed on time and within budget. We’ll take care of everything from permit acquisition to final inspection.

Frequent Project Updates

  • Our management team takes pride in having a strong presence on each and every job site. They oversee all aspects of the job and will keep you updated on the progress.

Project Closeout

  • This is one of the most critical stages of any demolition job. We’ll take you on a final inspection to ensure you’re completely satisfied with the result.

Yes, we do residential demolition.
