How We’ve Helped


Houses Deconstructed for Reusable Materials

Tons of Waste Diverted From Landfills

TRP has diverted over 400,000 tons of reusable materials from landfills, helping to reduce our footprint on the planet as well as provide repurposed materials for construction.


Workers and Contractors Trained

TRP has trained and certified over 500 unemployed, underemployed, and disadvantaged workers, as well as over 70 contractors who in turn create needed construction jobs.
