re·pur·posed·MA·TE·RI·ALS (noun) - byproducts and waste that have value "as is" to a second, unrelated industry.  LEARN MORE ABOUT US>>
(Denver | Chicago | Atlanta | Dallas and Philadelphia/NJ coming soon)   
repurposingMAGIC:  The magic behind "repurposing" is that one waste stream is viewed completely different by two unrelated industries.  Neither "repurpose" is better/worse, right/wrong.  They are both smart in their own way.  Click Here for Ski Cable>>

repurpose #1:  "We like to wrap ski lift cable around the bottom of our fish pens.  The cable adds weight so the nets stay down under the water." - Jake McReynolds in British Columbia 

repurpose #2:  "The ski cable makes awesome hand railing in a 2nd life.  My clients go nuts over it." - Alicia Sparks in Idaho  
Parking Lot Fabric.  BEFORE:  A Ford Motor Company sub-contractor had 10 truckloads (300,000 SqFt) of this synthetic, temporary parking lot fabric they wanted to keep out of the landfill.  They called us.  AFTER:  A Nebraska dairy operation ordered a roll yesterday to put down on the floor of their milking parlor to keep the guys from slipping on the wet concrete.  Dan, Brilliant "repurpose", and we appreciate your business!!

Gym Flooring.  L: Chi  Click Here for Court Pricing>>

repurposedPROJECT:  "Nathan, from South Dakota, just purchased 33 sheets of gym flooring. He is using it to build a custom squash court in his basement." - Patrick (our Chicago manager)

INTERESTING FACT:  Many think that "repurposing" is for those of the lower income demographic.  To the contrary, as Nathan's home squash court attests, we have many very high net worth and business owners/executives as customers and supporters!  Hmmm...might there be a correlation between frugality and net worth!?!
Food Grade Plastic Pallets.  We just got in a bunch of food grade/FDA plastic pallets.  Most pallets are 40" x 48".  Pallet Pricing>> 

repurposedPROJECT:  "These heavy plastic pallets make great floors for outdoor showers or anywhere where you need flooring with great drainage.  They have them at a local church camp.  And pallets are very cost effective for flooring!"Jack McAdams in Iowa
