GA Industrial Materials Exchange and
Building Material Reuse Association in
efforts to help conserve natural resources.
April 23, 2007
American Builder Surplus has joined Building Materials Reuse Association (website)and
Georgia Department of Natural Resources / Georgia Industrial Materials Exchange (website).
Their goal is to develop a community for construction and construction related businesses to trade overstock,
surplus or salvage materials and to give such materials a "second life".
The amount of perfectly usable materials which companies are disposing of every day is staggering. 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. Public and private organizations around the world are waking up to the problem of overflowing
landfills and finite natural resources, however, up to this time, there have been very few initiatives to deal with these issues in a
AmericanBuilderSurplus.com addresses these problems in a way that not only provides the construction industry with economic
incentives but also helps environmentally conscious organizations as well. 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. Additionally, companies may benefit from incentives set up by federal and local governments to encourage use of
recycled or salvaged materials.
AmericanBuilderSurplus.com website is designed for today's construction
industry, it employs established industry standards to
describe the product, making it easier to mark and find. The website provides world-wide exposure for environmentally sentient
companies along with secure methods of payment for products and freight.
AmericanBuilderSurplus.com company is looking for more ways to be involved in the activities that help enrich peoples lives
and preserve the environment for future generations to come. They are open to working with other organizations to join efforts to
achieve these goals.
