Big Reuse is New York City's only non-profit retail outlet for salvaged and surplus building materials. Their mission is to reduce the amount of unnecessary construction and demolition waste clogging our landfills, which contributes to pollution, GHG emissions, climate chagne, and global warming, while offering deep discounts on their resale.
