Scott and Pamela Weiss paid a little under $5 million for a home in Palo Alto, Calif., last year. Come tax time, they expect to get back about $66,000 for tearing it down.

Ken Ortiz, TRP's Chicago Regional Manager, was featured in this great article on Huffington Post.  Ken formed a partnership with the ReBuilding Exchange in Chicago to promote deconstruction and building material salvage, and to create employment opportunities.  Their partnership has expanded to include other Chicago nonprofits to help unemployed and unemployable workers find jobs and training in the green industry.
