The City of Seattle does not require that construction and demolition materials are salvaged but does encourage material reuse.  A Salvage Assessment paired with the help of a Verifying Agent specializing in material reuse markets will help identify which materials from a project site are likely to be salvaged for reuse. The Verifying Agent makes this assessment based on current market demands but the assessment is not a guarantee.  Fluctuating markets and consumer needs based on location may impact the retail for some materials identified as “Salvageable.”

Committed to saving or safely disposing of the maximum amount of building materials? Consider deconstruction. Deconstruction is a form of building demolition that utilizes a combination of machine and hand-dismantling to recover more materials for reuse. This can include everything from structural framing beams to flooring and fixtures.  For a Deconstruction Assessment, please contact one of these two Verifying Agents below:
