repurposedREFERRAL.  "Glenda, I am the Pollution Prevention Coordinator forOrange County, Florida, and I am trying to find options for businesses to reduce their waste. I heard about your company through a colleague. I have a few questions regarding how you all acquire your products. Do people donate them or sell them to you? Do you all pick them up from businesses? Do you do any business in Florida?" - Lauren

RELauren, Thx for the questions.  Yes, we service Florida and all of America.   We often get the question…”How do you guys work?”.  With us every deal we do is different.  It depends on what you have, the quantity, the location, why the item(s) are obsolete, etc.  Given that, the next step when you have something that might be a candidate for “repurposing” would be to send us an email with details…eg: pictures, description, location, quantity, etc.
