Reclaim Detroit’s primary focus is to divert as much material from Detroit’s 78,000 vacant structures from landfills as possible and will do so by using a process called deconstruction.

Reclaim Detroit is looking to change minds on deconstruction in Detroit. Currently materials are stored at its Focus Hope training facility and reclaimed wood is available for sale.
