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>>

1" x 54" Conveyor Belting.  We just did deal for 11,000' of 1" thick x 54" wide belting.  At 25 lbs/ft this is 275,000 lbs of belting.  We can get about 1,500' per truckload  L: Midwest  Email for Pricing>>

repurposedCUSTOMER:  One of our large Gulf Coast transload facility customers  (they offload contents of rail cars onto ships) solved their problem fouled ballast problem by buying 5,000' of used conveyor belting to roll out between the two rails to keep salt, fly ash, wheat, etc. out of the ballast until a vacuum truck could get by to suck it up.  How's that for a little Cowboy Engineering, or "repurposing" as we call it, to solve a problem for a fraction of the cost of buying new, purpose built material?

Wheel Washer.  We just did a deal for this large wheel washer.  This piece of equipment is designed to wash the mud off of trucks exiting dirt roads prior to driving on paved roads.  Mines, quarries, and excavation contractors are common users of this type of equipment.  L: Denver  Email for More Details>> 

repurposedIDEA:  Speaking of Cowboy Engineering, we were approached by a big Project Cargo company (Google "Project Cargo" for pictures of some extraordinary machinery they haul across the the ocean) that brings in wind turbine blades from overseas.  They need to wash the salt from the ocean spray off the pieces and parts prior to transport.  They are seeing if they can adapt this wheel washer to solve their wash off problem.  Todd, all we can say is brilliant adaptive thinking! 
Polyiso Insulation.  We're just finishing off a huge roof tear off in Texas of 3" x 4' x 8' polyiso insulation.  We're open to any offers if you want a full truckload of insulation of 364 sheets (11,648 Sq Ft).  L: Dallas  Make Offer on Full Truckload>>

Composite Lumber.  We just took in a truckload of these 1/2" x 11 1/4" x 12' panels.  They come in 6 colors  L: Atlanta  Email for Colors, Quantities & Pricing>>
repurposedDEAL.  BEFORE"Our city is doing some renovation to the City Hall and we have removed from the roof a (as far as we know) working, but no longer used siren that was previously used for weather warnings.  Our city now cooperates with the county for emergency warnings and management, and this siren will never be used again. However, there may be a small town somewhere that uses a siren for a noon whistle or other warnings that could use this siren.  We'd rather see it re-used, or 'repurposed', rather than having to scrap metal it. Would you be interested in this? " - Steven  STATUS:  Steven accepted our offer, and we now have this siren for sale!

Q:  Like Steven, do you have surplus or idle equipment or inventory that you want out-of-the-warehouse and off-the-books?  If yes, Email Us Details>> 

Warning Siren.  L: Chicago  Email for More Details>>
Steel Mezzanine.  Well, we've sold about 1/3 of the 40,000+ sq ft steel mezzanine.  We're now going to break up the mezzanine and sell the two individual components...I-Beams and Adjustable Posts.  L: Atlanta  Email for Dimensions & Pricing>>

repurposedPOSSIBILITY:  "Our plan is to build a portable/adjustable mezzanine to be able to walk from the mezzanine onto the deck of the boats being built. We are going to look at adapting your product." Martin  REWe love your choice of the word "adapting".  Being able to "adapt" materials and equipment to solve problems is one of the hallmarks of our customers!  Unfortunately, being able to "adapt" materials and equipment is not a common skill.  Those who can't "adapt" end up buying new and paying a whole lot more!!! 
Italian Marble Tile.  We just got in 11,000 SF of surplus, never installed white Italian Carrara Bardiglio marble tile.  L: Denver  Email for Details & Pricing>>

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.

Gym Flooring.  We are selling the home basketball court of the Univ of Arizona Wildcats.  There are two cool things about this floor: 1) obviously, it is the floor of a well known team; 2) The floor has already been separated and de-nailed.  L: Dallas, Denver  Click Here for Pricing>>

repurposedCUSTOMER:  This is one of our buyers for the U of A floor.  They re-installed the floor in a retail store.  Bart, it looks great, and we appreciate your business!

Stainless Steel Tubing.  We got in 6,000' of 3/16" stainless tubing.  This is unused, surplus inventory.  L: Denver  Click Here for Pricing>>

BEFORE:  This tubing came from a laparoscopic surgery instrument manufacturer.  They changed the specs on their tubing, so this inventory became obsolete.  As you can imagine, this tubing is super high quality!

AFTER:  "I'm thinking of 'repurposing' your stainless tubing to replicate the garden feature in the attached picture." - Linda in 
Company Q & A:  Q"How do you know how many feet of belting there are on these big rolls?" Jacob Asbury   A: We use the formula: (Inside Diameter + Outside Diameter) x # of wraps (middle of roll to outside) x .131 = footage on the roll.  

Q:  Do you have question about our materials, business, or our mission/concept of "repurposing"?  Ask Damon>>

* A.C.E.  This acronym stands for AttributesCharacteristicsEngineering.  We use this acronym to tell you a little about a used material and what qualities it has in hopes that someone can find a "repurpose" for it.  Asked another way...what did the material do in it's 1st life that might help identify a very different, 2nd life for it?
