Seems to me the least that one could do is salvage the bricks, from these kilns, and use them to construct other kilns. It's known as recycling. Think about it.

Seems to me that probably thought of that...but the time to take them down and clean them up ...and so selling them is a chance for others to recycle. They get a small amount of money and the buyers get to recycle.
