"Nothing gets thrown out!" is a lesson we have learned from our grandparents. Any scrap can be reused, changed or repurposed to become something different. To throw something out is a waste, to waste something means to lose money. In short, circular economy has always existed.
All the above concepts can be applied to demolition processes when we demolish to requalify, redevelop or rebuild. Nothing gets wasted. Material is selected, processed as necessary and then reused, directly on-site or somewhere else.
A company in Spain understands this well, having recently demolished its old shed to then build another one in its place.
