You may need to have your structure inspected first.
The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources requires that all institutional, commercial, public, and industrial structures be inspected for asbestos prior to any demolition. However, single-family residences are exempt from this requirement.
All demolitions, including structures where no asbestos is present, require sending notification to the DENR at least 10 business days prior to the scheduled start date of demolition.

Hire the perfect contractor for the job.
Demolition is a big job, and when it comes to maneuvering heavy equipment around your property, you’re going to want a licensed, qualified professional behind the wheel.
One of the best ways to protect yourself is to ensure the contractor you’re hiring is licensed to perform demolition in the state of South Carolina.
However, hiring a licensed contractor shouldn’t be the only goal in mind. The contractor should also have a good track record with their customers and overall safety. Hometown Demolition Contractors is a great way to check out companies in your area, read up on their services and customer reviews, and request quotes directly from the site.
Deconstruction can save you money on your demolition.
A great way to not only save costs but also help the environment is by deconstructing your structure as much as possible prior to mechanical demolition. Not only does less “house” to demolish mean lower demo and disposal costs, but the materials you salvage can also be donated to charity.
For example, Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores provide a wide selection of lightly used home improvement materials and home goods to members of your community.

Dispose of that debris the right way.
Sometimes companies will include the cost of hauling and disposal in their quote for demolition, but that's not always the case. If the contractor you hire isn't going to take care of the debris for you, you'll have to dispose of it yourself. Typically the most convenient and affordable way to do that is by renting a dumpster.
Hometown Dumpster Rental can help with that. Find the right dumpster rental provider, read company profiles and customer reviews, and request quotes from as many companies as you'd like—all from one site.
Renting a dumpster can seem overwhelming to the first-time renter. There are several factors that can affect pricing and there are many sizes to choose from, but that's why getting quotes from at least 2-3 companies is a good idea.
