Expired PAEP Webinar – January 12th, 2023

“Repurposing” A New Frontier in Sustainability


There are a number of used and surplus materials coming from Corporate America that may have value that you might be overlooking.  The key is finding a second, unrelated industry where the materials have value.  This value-creation process is called “repurposing”.  What are some examples of “repurposing”?  It is taking a byproduct or waste stream such as a retired street sweeper brush and giving it a 2nd life as a backscratcher for horses or cattle.  It is taking a decommissioned fire hose and giving it an extended life as a boat dock fender.  It is taking an obsolete ski lift cable and giving it a second life as hand railing in a luxury condo building.  Join us for a thought-provoking session that will open your mind to new value-creating ideas with obsolete materials.

Presenter: Damon Carson is the owner and founder of repurposedMATERIALS.  With yards in Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Iowa, Ohio, and South Carolina, his company has a very unique business model focused on “repurposing” waste and obsolete materials from Corporate America.  repurposedMATERIALS is actually Damon’s second foray into the waste stream of America albeit with a very different and unique business model.  Several years back, he sold a garbage company that he had co-owned in the Colorado ski resorts of Vail and Breckenridge to Waste Management.
