Recycled Wood

I purchased land just north of Mobile Al. That has an old house on it that needs to be removed. It is 2 old shotgun houses put together. All wood floors and ceilings. It looks like a lot of good wood to recycle. Does any one have a suggestion on how to go about contacting the right folks to do this?
I am not looking to make money on the deal just get ALL the house removed.

You might consider donating the houses and the lumber contained therein to a charitable group such as one that makes wooden toys for children, or even Habitat For Humanity. They could be responsible for demolition AND cleanup and could keep the lumber and fixtures. I suggest that anyone taking advantage of your kind offer sign a release in case of injury and agree to a scheduled time limit to complete the task. This may provide you with a handsome tax deduction as well.

Depending on the age of the house, asbestos and lead-based paint could be big concerns. Some states require inspections on all buildings prior to demolition, regardless of who is doing the work.
