We support all reclamation efforts - the effort can be taken outdoors by including using reclaimed/salvaged cobblestone and curb for your landscape/hardscape requirements!

Murco Recycling Enterprises, Inc

We LOVE this article. It's why we started this company 28 years ago to broker used building materials out of homes that are going to be remodeled or demolished. Our buyers get quality high-end used building materials, we make the seller money AND we spare Mother Earth the tonnage from the landfills. We work with homeowners, contractors, architects, interior designers, builders, etc. It's reuse with a purpose, and everyone can participate! You can check out some of our success stories here: Murco Success Stories and see what's for sale, we get wonderful new inventory all the time. We appreciate you writing this article to raise awareness about the cause!
