We may be able to pick up large items or let you know if items are unacceptable via phone or photo. We accept materials in our stores EVERY DAY from 10AM-5PM. We may reject certain items if they are overstocked or deemed non-reusable. Please refer to the list below for general guidelines, however, this list is non-exhaustive! Earthwise reserves the right to accept or reject materials at any time. We highly recommend you give us a call if you have any questions about bringing materials in. Keep in mind that we accept materials to be reused!

2014 City of Seattle Salvage Assessment REQUIREMENT

As of July 1st, 2014, the City of Seattle requires that ALL construction, building alteration, and demolition projects, where the area of work is greater than 750 square feet, to submit a Deconstruction and Salvage Assessment. The assessment indicates which of the materials identified in the plan are potentially salvageable. Seattle Public Utilites and the Department of Planning and Development are working towards the goal of diverting 70% of construction and demolition waste from landfills by 2020! The goal is to increase the amount of materials that can be recycled and reused.

Earthwise is working with the City of Seattle and those seeking permits by providing salvage assessments. These Salvage Assessments are free as long as Earthwise is given the opportunity to complete the salvage. Please contact Paul ( at the Seattle location for more information about how we can help.
