The mass exodus from Detroit, Michigan since the 1950s has left the once thriving city with over 70,000 abandoned homes. The demolition of the vacant buildings is a necessary evil if the city is to have any chance of a rebirth, but the process is both costly and wasteful. Now, Mayor Mike Duggan plans to create a reclamation centre in the city, which will serve as a hub for the recycling of tons of valuable materials — including wood over a hundred years old — which can be salvaged from the houses before they are demolished.
