Beyond Waste


Beyond Waste is an organization that offers hands-on deconstruction, as well as consulting and training services for deconstruction/demolition. Deconstruction services include disassembly of residential, commercial, and state/federal wood-framed buildings. Salvaged building materials are available for sale, and lumber is also remanufactured into flooring and wainscoting. Beyond Waste has a small mill where they make flooring and tables, which is becoming a far bigger part of their business than deconstruction.
