Every year, hundreds of tons of otherwise useful building materials are sent to landfills because there is no mechanism to recycle these materials and make them available for reuse. This problem is especially prominent in the Yampa Valley, where the construction industry is one of the largest segments of the local economy. Frequent remodels, “scrape offs,” and new home construction projects are generating a tremendous volume of waste, much of it potentially reusable or recyclable.
The Milner Mall operates as a subsidiary of Twin Enviro’s Milner Landfill, and as a general rule, we encourage the public and businesses to de-construct buildings rather than demolish them. We offer a place for owners to donate salvaged materials so they can be reused, which keeps materials out of landfills and saves natural resources.
We then offer the salvaged materials for sale to the public at a discounted rate. The income from these sales is used to fund the organization. VIEW HOURS
