Our salvage store features a large selection of materials such as antique and architectural elements, lumber, light fixtures, sheet goods, plumbing fixtures, doors, and more; all of which are donated, processed and sold to the public at affordable prices in the name of recycling and reuse.
The U.S. has the highest amount of waste generated per person of any country. We produce an average of 4.6 pounds a day! With 323 million people, that is over 725,000 tons of garbage — enough to fill 63,000 garbage trucks.
This is why it is essential that we combat the culture of waste by recycling and reusing building materials. We collect 6 tons of recycled building materials a day and disseminate them throughout the New Orleans community in an effort to reduce our city’s carbon footprint and to lead by example to the rest of the gulf south the importance of buying recycled goods.
As we are constantly expanding and receiving new materials, make sure to keep a close eye on our instagram feed to see what’s new in our inventory.
