Deconstruction is the first step in most remodeling projects. Talk to your contractor about salvaging materials for reuse.

Deconstruction conserves resources – not just the materials, but all the energy it took to manufacture them in the first place. Lumber, doors, windows, cabinets, flooring, bathroom and kitchen fixtures, hardware and wiring are items most typically recovered. Older buildings often contain rare, old growth lumber of very high quality.

BRING resells salvaged materials brought to us by contractors and homeowners. We’ll pick up large quantities of materials from your site. Materials donated to BRING are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
