Since 1993, architects, contractors, building owners, federal, state and local governments have relied on TRP to keep reusable and recyclable building materials out of overburdened landfills. By de-constructing (instead of demolishing) a building, TRP is able to salvage up to 80 percent of the materials and channel them back into the marketplace through donations and sales at its network of retail outlets.

TRP offers the following green services and products:

Building materials donation and deconstruction • Building materials salvage • Building materials distribution • Great deals on reclaimed building materials and lumber • Project management • Training • Consulting services • Reuse and recycling plans

The Latest TRP News:

Like many organizations in the construction trades, TRP doesn’t have enough field people available to find and execute potential contracts. The cost of keeping talented workers has risen dramatically.

I live in La Mesa, California, a suburb of 60,000 immediately east of San Diego. In early November, the La Mesa Historical Society held its annual Historic Home Tour. The tour included seven residences located in a hilly section of the city called La Mesa Highlands, where every home is different and many sit on coveted view lots.
