About ReUse Action

We’re a social enterprise

  • We’ve been operating a small group of not-for-profit and for-profit social enterprises since 2007
  • We continue the neighborhood-based and community-focused work we started in 2007 (go here for a brief history)
  • We acquire & sell reclaimed & surplus materials.
  • We provide consultation services in the areas of demolition, reclamation, recycling and reuse
  • We create living wage jobs in Buffalo
  • We grow & encourage economic development based on the reclaiming and reuse of materials otherwise “thrown away” in the landfill
  • We nurture job-readiness and job training programs in an area of extremely high unemployment, using paid, productive work to train and support younger people ages 17 to 30
  • We provide quality building materials and other reused items at a fair price to homeowners, landlords, contractors, developers, artists and craftsmen

We operate a retail store, open to the public

We provide comprehensive services


  • We have thousands of both old and like-new doors, factory returns and surplus
  • We have a yard full of barn wood – hand-hewn and sawn beams, joists, siding and flooring.
  • We have lots of foam insulation, reclaimed and surplus/factory second
  • We have a growing inventory of old house parts
  • We make and sell flooring, trim and molding, furniture and other value-added products, from our stock of reclaimed wood and from new wood
  • Most “old house” and surplus items are priced at 35% to 65% of the prevailing local retail price for similar new products
