The Cost of Demolition

As we discuss whether development pays for itself, here is an interesting Factoid:

From the City of Raleigh Fee Structure:
• Demolition of a building or structure: $70

From the Wake County Landfill: Tipping Fee Structure
Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)
South Wake Landfill : $30/ton
North Wake Landfill : $29.50/ton
Effective July 1, 2008, the State of NC will require a $2/ton excise tax on every ton received at the landfill.

I dunno, feels a little below cost to me.
