Deconstruction & ReUse Network

Deconstruction & ReUse Network

Deconstruction & ReUse Network is an environmental and humanitarian nonprofit that supports California’s green building movement by advancing the general environmental principal of “reduce, reuse and recycle” within the construction and demolition (C&D) industries. Their goal is to educate and empower property owners, building industry professionals and civic leaders to adopt the practice of deconstruction as a rational alternative to traditional demolition, thereby keeping C&D materials out of landfills, while simultaneously growing a robust network of individuals and organizations committed to the reclamation and distribution of reusable building materials and surplus salvage. 


The Building Materials Reuse Association (BMRA) is a non-profit educational and research organization whose mission is to facilitate building deconstruction and the reuse and recycling of building materials.
