Material Resourcers began in 2012 as an industrial and manufacturing waste solutions company. Our motto – RECLAIM, RETHINK, RESOURCE – expresses our general philosophy of saving materials and by-products destined for the landfill, reconsidering their value & application, and discovering/creating a new use or form with them. Our mission is three-fold:
◦ Help companies & property owners reduce disposal costs related to excess, byproduct, & waste materials
◦ Provide high-quality materials and resources for craftspeople, DIY'ers, and repurposers
◦ Prolong landfills and natural resources through alternative, sustainable waste solutions
We accomplish this by providing three services:
Material Reclamation: Acquiring – through purchase, no cost, or paid removal – excess, waste, and by-product materials from local businesses & organizations that would otherwise be landfilled. We then research, test, and market alternative uses for these products without adjustment (i.e. as-is).
Repurposing/Production: Transforming – through mechanical manipulation, size adjustment, or craftsmanship – reclaimed raw materials into a function not originally intended. This creates novel products not generally available in the marketplace. We also identify repurposing options and market these as DIY projects to our customers.
Pre-Demolition/Deconstruction: Salvaging of building materials – fixtures, lumber, finish elements, appliances, etc. – prior to, or in lieu of, demolition. Work is either done at company expense (paying salvage rights), or at property owner’s expense (to secure donation of materials through The ReUse People of America).
