About Us

We’re a social enterprise

  • 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 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 grow & encourage economic development based on the reclaiming and reuse of materials otherwise “thrown away” in the landfill
  • We provide quality building materials and other reused items at a fair price to homeowners, landlords, contractors, developers, artists and craftsmen
