A LIVE EXAMPLE CAN FIND AT DXB IS THE OLD HOUSES DO NOT BREAK BUT PRESERVE - REUSE AND THE COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS RECYCLE - BUILD NEW BUILDINGS

Reuse and recycle both have their own niches in the construction industry and are used according to the requirement.We do a lot of reuse at a residential level (which has already been mentioned in an earlier reply), but we can both reuse and recyle at an industrial and construction level. Global companies are recycling large amounts of waste and using them in various other industries. Both the entities have their own use in the construction industry and according to me they cannot be judged as to "which holds an upper hand".

I do think this has to do with the life-style of the person; later, it becomes part of his professional practice.
Recently, the Metropolis, has published a small article "Getting business cards out of the trash, January 2008" about an architectural firm that even the firm's business cards are both reuse or recycled/reuse or recycable.
