Waste Equals Opportunity

Statistics show nearly 40% of the nation’s waste stream is building waste. At ReUse Action our main focus is to leverage these “waste” materials to create jobs and opportunity in the community.

Our customers are diverse – small landlords, homeowners, artists, contractors, small and large businesses, a variety of people searching for materials of all types – good quality, old, new, unique, artistic, or architectural.

In just six months of increasing activity at our store on the East Side of Buffalo, hundreds of customers have found doors, windows, ceramic tile, lumber old & new, insulation, and diverse materials to improve their homes or integrate into projects. We attract a diverse group of buyers and we’re grateful our products sell so well.

Our Biggest Challenge . . .

is securing good quality, reusable materials BEFORE they end up on the curb and on a one-way trip to the dump. Our friends and supporters in the community make a steady stream of emails and phone calls to us, alerting us to opportunities to put materials back to work. Our staff is fast and efficient – they respond quickly to efficiently remove, pickup, display and sell useful products, completing a cycle that too often leads to the landfill.

Can You Help?

We’re asking you to help out if you can. If you have reusable materials or know of others who do, please let us know. If you see or hear of individuals or businesses who have materials they’d like to get rid of, please give us a call at 716-894-3366, email us at donate@reuseaction.com or come to our store, 980 Northampton Street in Buffalo, open Tuesday, Friday and Saturday 9am to 4pm.

ReUse Action on the Radio

Our organization is 100% about making connections and building relationships! This month we’re proud to announce our support for WBFO, Buffalo’s NPR affiliate. Our sponsorship of public radio helps more people learn about their options for reusing and recycling building materials. We find when people know they have an option for recycling they’re happy to make the call. Click here to hear the audio spot.

We hope you’ll share this message with people you know. Contractors, developers, homeowners, property managers, small and large businesses have materials that otherwise will be removed, demolished, dumped or destroyed.
