ReUse People begin operations

TAHOE/TRUCKEE – The ReUse People promotes the deconstruction, or careful dismantling, and reuse of buildings or partial buildings that would normally be demolished and thrown in the landfill.

Construction and demolition debris account for approximately 40 percent of the materials currently occupying landfill space – the single largest contributing source, as compared to 11 percent household and 13 percent commercial.

TRP has also partnered with the Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps on a new warehouse for the resale of salvaged building materials that is open to the general public, located at 6350 27th St., Sacramento. Items generally sell at 15-50 percent of retail. The warehouse accepts donations of building materials and can arrange for pick-up of your items within the Valley/Sierra area, sometimes free of charge on a case-by-case basis. Items accepted include appliances, doors, windows, cabinets, flooring, lumber, hardware ans some landscaping materials.

For more information contact TRP Central Valley/Sierra Area manager Kristin Williams at (209) 241-3614

Deconstruction contractors: Erik Hirschbek, Wood Ridge Construction, Truckee, (775) 250-1406; Tillio Olcese, Olcese Construction, Incline Village, (775) 882-1647.
