City of Seattle Salvage Assessment

Do I need an Assessment?

As of July 1, 2014, the City of Seattle mandates that before demolition or remodel, homeowners must have a verified agent, such as Second Use, complete a Deconstruction & Salvage Assessment. If you are planning a demolition, or remodeling project that includes demolition, with a scope of work greater than 750 square feet, you are now required to submit a Deconstruction and Salvage Assessment.

How does it work?

Second Use is happy to perform a salvage assessment. Submit the form below, and one of our estimators will be in touch within 24 hours. At this time, a verified agent is only required to identify material with salvage potential, but it is not required to be salvaged at this time. This assessment allows you to be aware of alternatives to waste. Salvage is not only beneficial to the environment, but reduces the cost of the waste and demolition charges for the homeowner and contractor.
