ReUSE MN Webinar: The Power and Impact of Building Material Reuse

This webinar will highlight the multiple benefits of reusing and repurposing used building materials. In Minnesota, less than 30% of used building materials are reused or recycled, the rest are buried in landfills. The presenters will describe ways to reverse this inefficient, harmful practice and create economic opportunities statewide.

The presenters operate businesses that reclaim used materials and outlets for selling the reclaimed goods. Please join us to learn more about these social enterprises and discuss ways we can expand these businesses within a growing circular economy.

- Steve Thomas, ReUSE Minnesota
- Thomas Adams, Better Futures
- John McCarthy, North Shore Architectural Antiques

This is Part I of a two-part series. The second webinar, 'Policies to Promote Building Material Stewardship, will be on Thursday, June 13.
