The ReUse People of Canada

A Registered Charity

We reduce the solid waste stream and change the way the built environment is renewed by salvaging building materials and distributing them for reuse.

About Us

Since 2018

Since our first project in July of 2018, architects, contractors, building owners and federal, provincial and, and local governments have relied on TRP to keep reusable and recyclable building materials out of overburdened landfills. When a building is de-constructed (rather than demolished), up to 75 percent of the materials can be salvaged and channeled back into the marketplace. Our roots go back to our sister organization in the US whose 30-years in building materials salvage has delivered reusable from over 4,000 projects to the general public.
