Dallas Location.  We are just days away from opening our Dallas location.  We already have multiple trucks of inventory unloaded and ready to sell.  We need your ideas on a couple of the unique ones, though. 
Dallas #1...Compressed Agricultural Fiber Panels.  We just took in two truckloads of these compressed hay panels.  They are 2" x 4' x 8'-10' long.  Their main market for these panels is to build homes in foreign countries.  They are pretty ingenious, actually.  L: Dal  Learn More >>  (NOTE: We'll have these available in just a few days when Dallas is officially open for business!)

Q:  Do you have ideas for all these compressed fiber panels could be "repurposed"?  Submit Ideas>>
Dallas #2...Meat Trays.  We just took in 300,000 (yes, that is the correct #) of these meat trays.  These are brand new, still-in-the-box.  These would be ideal for a deli or grocery chain.  L: Dal  Email Us for Sizes, Quantities, and Pricing>>

backSTORY:  These were ordered by a packaging distributor.  Their customer paid for them but never took delivery.  The distributor contacted us b/c they just wanted to keep these brand new, perfectly good trays out of the landfill.  

Q:  Besides being used for meat trays, how could these meat trays be "repurposed"?  Submit Ideas>>
expansionUPDATE.  Dan is on the ground helping Sam, our branch manager, get the last few things ready to open our Philadelphia area location.  We are now accepting materials in the Northeast.  Q: Do you have waste, inventory, equipment, etc in the mid-Atlantic or Northeast or anywhere?  If yes, we're ready to deal.  Email Details>>

Parking Lot Fabric.  12' W x 60-100' L rolls.  L: Chi, Den, Atl  Click Here for Fabric Pricing>>

repurposedCUSTOMER: A Chicago-area landscaping company purchased several rolls.  They are going to roll it out and use as "track matting" so their equipment doesn't get stuck or tear up the ground.  Mike, we appreciate your business!
Italian Marble Tile.  We just got in 11,000 SF of new, surplus white Italian Carrara Bardiglio marble tile.  L: Den  Click Here for Tile Pricing and Sizes>>

backSTORY:  This tile was purchased for the St Regis Hotel in Aspen.  The owner of the luxury hotel decided he didn't like it, so he ordered something else.
Turf...substitutionaryTHINKING.  Nest pad is basically a plastic, shag carpet-like material.  The shag, or pile, acts as cushioning so the eggs don't break when the hen lays them.  Q:  Wouldn't substituting shag-like used turf do the same thing as using purpose-built new nest pad?  Hmmm...!?!  And, by utilizing used turf, poultry owners would save both big $$$ and help keep turf out of our landfills.  L: Chi, Atl   Click Here for Turf Prices>>
