The three-metre high fence that snakes around the site of the G20 summit in Toronto is to be dismantled in the coming weeks, but its fate is unknown.

The fence, which runs some six kilometres around the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and part of the city's financial district, was constructed in the weeks leading up to the meeting of world leaders.

On Monday, crews began the process of taking down the fine-mesh "expanded metal" and chain-link barrier, which is reinforced by concrete blocks and metal tubing.

The Integrated Security Unit, which oversaw all security issues related to the summit, couldn't say whether materials used in the fence would be reused, recycled or destroyed. The ISU wouldn't say when it expects the fence to be completely gone, but has said it expects it will be dismantled quicker than it was put up.

What do you think should happen to the fence once it has been dismantled? Should it be reused or destroyed?
