AFTER: We helped a big construction company re-home 3,500’ of 24” dia from a tear out and replacement project at Pearl Harbor Military Base in Hawaii.


BEFORE: “We’re removing 3,500’ of 24” dia x 38’ FPVC pipe that has only been in the ground since 2018. The pipe transported only fresh water and it was inside a steel casing. It is in very good condition as you can imagine. Can you find a home for this? It would be a shame to grind this all up for recycling.” Daniel


Q: Like Daniel, do you have used materials still in good condition that it would be a shame to send to recycling to chip, shred, grind, melt? We might be able to help!
