The ReUse People of America

By consistently focusing on its mission, TRP has diverted over 260,000 tons of used building materials from landfills, trained dozens of contractors and provided full-time employment to hundreds of people.

Through our efforts, 75 to 80 percent of a building can be kept out of the landfill – in fact, on several projects we have diverted over 95 percent. We salvage framing lumber, doors, windows, cabinets, flooring, plumbing and electric fixtures, and more. Since its inception, TRP and its Certified Deconstruction Contractors have deconstructed thousands of buildings, including single and multi-family houses, military warehouses and large scale motion picture sets.

As a deconstruction practitioner, international distributor of used building materials, trainer and consultant, TRP is proud to be a driving force in the Green Building Industry.
