Are you aware of the DPD Required Salvage Assessment in Seattle? As of July 1, 2014, a new requirement mandates that before demolition, homeowners must have a verified agent, such as Second Use, complete a Salvage Assessment. Here are the basics:

1. If you are planning a demolition or remodeling project that includes demoltion with a scope of work greater than 750 square feet, you are now required to submit a Deconstruction and Salvage Assessment.

2. The assessment indicates which of the materials identified in the plan are potentially salvageable, and can be completed free of charge by one of our estimators.

3. Material is not required to be salvaged from your project site at this time, but the assessment allows you to be aware of alternatives to waste.

Don’t hesitate to contact our salvage crew (206-763-6929×4) with any questions and to schedule your FREE Salvage Assessment.
