Formed out of a commitment to environmental and social sustainability, Urban Miners salvages building materials and household goods to pass on to you at affordable prices.

Since 2007, Urban Miners has grown to become the forerunner and regional leader in a growing economy of retail reuse centers and salvage service industries.

Recognized by the Hamden Chamber of Commerce as recipient of the 2012 Green Business Advocate Award and designated as Business New Haven’s Rising Star of 2010, Urban Miners also works with the public/private sector to educate and advocate for deconstruction and materials reuse.

Founder Joe DeRisi holds a master’s degree in resource management as well as a certificate in deconstruction, and has worked locally as an environmental analyst, conservationist and former building contractor. He works alongside a staff of talented others who share a vision for a sustainable future and a commitment to customer service.

BUILDING MATERIAL SALVAGE/ DECONSTRUCTION

Remodeling? Rebuilding? We help you make environmentally conscious choices by removing building materials such as cabinets, doors, hardware, fixtures, flooring, trim, and more–often substantially reducing your disposal fees and saving good stuff from the landfill at the same time.

We also do deconstruction: taking apart entire structures for those who seek a partial or full alternative to demolition. Often we can save up to 80% of the building materials. Urban Miners helps you maintain a clear conscience about not being wasteful while creating the home you’ve always wanted.

HOME/ESTATE CLEAN-OUTS

It’s not junk to us! We do house cleanouts before your move or in preparation for your estate sales.

Urban Miners runs do-it-yourself workshops and trainings, and is available to provide programs on reuse and deconstruction to architects, contractors, educational institutions, neighborhood associations, and other public/private enterprises.
