Reuse Depot: Reclaiming materials one building at a time

Day 98 -The amount of waste produced with every renovation or demolition is profound. More times than not reusable materials are thrown out and ends up in the landfill. The Reuse Depot works in close collaboration with their deconstruction partner, BlueEarth Deconstruction, to ensure that every inch of a property has the chance to be considered for reuse.

“Together, Reuse Depot Inc. and Blue Earth Deconstruction work to provide you a tax-deductible donation method for any size donation of reusable building materials that we are able to accept. No donation is too large or too small for us to consider. From a kitchen or bathroom sink that is no longer needed to a full house deconstruction, we have the means and methods to assist you through your tax-deductible donation.”

Not only are they reusing materials, but they are offering those materials to others at a fraction of the cost. It’s a win for the planet and the consumer.

Their inventory includes:

  1. Architectural
  2. Appliances
  3. Bathroom
  4. Heating and Cooling
  5. Kitchen
  6. Lighting
  7. Furniture
  8. Windows
  9. Masonry & Stone
