Second Use is an amazing local salvage shop in Seattle that has been reclaiming building materials for reuse in the Puget Sound region since 1994.
Did you know at that least a quarter of the waste that leaves Seattle every week bound for a distant landfill is from building construction and demolition? And many of that waste can actually be reused! Second Use makes it their primary goal is to divert reusable building materials from the landfill and instead offer them back to the public at affordable prices.
By purchasing salvaged building materials from a place like Second Use, not only are you helping to reduce the volume of waste going to landfills, but you're also saving money (often as much as 40-60% from the original price), and getting a piece that has its own unique history, and perhaps isn't even in production anymore.
If you're currently undergoing a remodeling project, Second Use also offers salvage and deconstruction services. Whether you are a homeowner, contractor, designer, manufacturer, or retailer, their professional crew will help you reclaim reusable building materials from your home or jobsite. They'll pick up and help you remove reusable fixtures and materials. They also offer surplus and boneyard material collection, green demolition services, house moving, and waste removal and recycling services.
With over 3,000 items in stock and an ever-revolving inventory, you'll never know what you might find!
