We developed an idea for how to reduce construction and demolition waste in Nashville. We think that a warehouse that buys unused construction materials from contractors and resells the materials to other contractors or families could help to put a bigger emphasis on the reuse of materials, and would send less waste to dumpsters.

View their presentation to learn more about they helped Turner Construction reduce the amount of waste dumped into landfills.
