Nonprofit Opens Warehouses Selling Salvaged Building Materials

The ReUse People operates facilities all over the country where you can buy salvaged and new materials from deconstructed homes and other sources.

The Los Angeles warehouse opened in 2008. On hand are appliances, bricks, cabinets, doors, electrical, flooring, garden planters, hardware, lumber, plumbing fixtures, roofing tile, siding and windows.

Three Sub-Zero refrigerators found their way to the facility, but were expect to be snapped up quickly.

In addition, the organization certifies contractors as deconstruction specialists trained to take apart buildings so the materials can be salvaged and reused rather than sent to the dump.

According to the organization, TRP-certified contractors deconstructed 116 residences and one commercial building in the Los Angeles area in the past two years, representing about 4,680 tons diverted from local landfills.

These are the types of materials is what you will find at TRP retail warehouses. Scroll down for actual inventories at specific locations.

  1. we went Saturday. they were very nice but very understaffed. Doors were/are poorly displayed- impossible to “flip” through them to try and find one that you might like/buy.
    quality of items was below what I anticipated but hey- can’t complain about the prices..
