Rheaply Brings Ingenuity to Recycling Building Materials
Once users register for the company’s marketplace hosted by the San Francisco Environment Department, they can list or claim materials and communicate with each other via the messaging option. A “pro” version of the reuse marketplace tool adds permissions-based listings and advanced reporting.
The San Francisco project primarily focuses on commercial construction and includes items such as reclaimed bricks, marble slabs, metals, office furniture, lamps, and blinds. Rheaply is currently expanding to seven additional cities with a goal of 50 sponsored cities by the end of 2024.
Fecarotta concludes, “We need more introductions to large commercial suppliers and receivers, and municipality leaders, to continue the momentum we have and build the supply-and-demand partners necessary for a thriving circular economy.”
