    repurposedREFFERAL"I was referred to you by a rep from Veolia.  This material is not obsolete, it is actually state of the art. It is simply excess material from our manufacturing stream that would otherwise be discarded as scrap. The material is by all means reusable, recyclable, etc." - Michael McKay

    How We Work.  BEFORE:  "We have a pallet of magnets that have a pressure sensitive adhesive on the back.  We used these magnets in kits we made for a large company.  This company provided the magnets to us and they sent us way too many.  The product is no longer on the market and the magnets have been in our shop for over 15 years.   Can you find a home for them?" - Dennis  

    Q: Like Dennis, do you have obsolete product you'd like out of your warehouse?  We have interest!

    "If I had them I would sew them into dog and horse blankets to make therapy blankets. Magnets are good for what ails you!" - Julia

    " Depending on size, the dairy industry may be able to use to insert in the rumen of cattle to prevent 'hardware disease'." - Kathy

    "Just watched this Breaking Bad episode this weekend about magnets!" - Andy
