Note About Demolitions
Contact Hennepin County at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a pre-demolition inspection to ensure regulated materials are removed prior to demolition per Hennepin County Ordinance 7 paragraph 2.07 B. To learn more, visit Hennepin County - Construction and Demolition Waste for Contractors
To help divert waste from landfills, Hennepin County has grants available to homeowners and developers to deconstruct buildings to salvage building materials rather than demolish them.
