WE RESCUE & REUSE MATERIALS
Re4m collaborates with local construction, manufacturing, retail establishments, and residents, effectively diverting waste materials from landfills. We collect, revive, and repurpose materials from both businesses and residents, breathing new life into them and creating innovative products.
OUR REPEAT MATERIAL DIVERSION PROGRAM
We're actively seeking collaborations with local organizations such as museums, construction companies, retailers and manufacturers dedicated to fostering positive change and reducing their environmental impact to join our on-going collection program. Does your organization always have repeat materials being sent to the landfill? Your materials may qualify for our recycling program! Apply to join using the link below
