Overstocks, surpluses, miss-measurements, insurance claims and more end up in the landfill because they have become more expensive to handle than to dispose of. By doing so, we generate more and more waste. The natural resources are not unlimited, we can produce only so much marble and cut only so many trees.

They are offering a solution - rather than having to spend money getting rid of building materials they no longer need, companies can now make money and help the environment and recycle at the same time.
