Whether rehabbing an existing building or constructing a new one, property owners and occupants can affect the recycling industry through their purchases.  Buying post-consumer reused or recycled content products ensures that the materials you place in recycling bins have end uses.  Useful, creative, and attractive building and construction materials are constantly being newly designed.  Below are options for a variety of building and construction materials, from lighting to roofing, that are made from reused or recycled materials.

When shopping, ask your retailer about the availability of products with post-consumer content.  Even if they don't have it now, it'll be something for them to consider in the future.  If working with a contractor or distributor, specify you preference for post-consumer content building and construction materials.  They should be able to locate such products for you.  Lastly, keep in mind that some of these products may require installation by a professional; be sure to hire an installer when recommended.

The City of St. Louis offers this list of building and construction retailers, which is not inclusive, to help citizens buy recycled.  The City does not endorse any of these businesses or services.  Space does not allow us to include all stores and products that may be applicable to this list.  The variety and availability of these products in stores may change at anytime.  Companies located within the City of St. Louis are noted with an image of the Arch, while companies located in Missouri are marked with the State silhouette.
