“As someone who is both passionate for real estate as well as the environment, Second Use has become one of my favorite stops to browse salvaged building materials,” says REALTOR® Morgan Reay.

Second Use not only has locations in both Tacoma and Seattle, but their website is super helpful in showcasing their impressing selection of materials! They regularly update their inventory online so you can take a quick look whenever you’d like. And, “if you're planning a home demo, Second Use crews may provide complimentary removal of materials,” adds Morgan. You can learn more about getting rid of your reusable materials here.

Second Use is not only a great way to recycle and get a great deal, but it’s also an excellent resource for finding period-appropriate items: “I'm a huge lover of Craftsman and Victorian homes, so I'm able to find unique items such as glass doorknobs and vintage light fixtures. Like a trip to Costco, you can walk in the door with a list, but that list goes out the window after a few minutes of browsing! There is just so much inventory to peruse and drool over,” says Morgan.
