Waste Less Works is a locally, family-owned deconstruction business that serves to reduce waste in commercial and residential demolition projects. We have been honored to provide this service to businesses and homeowners in Missoula, MT since 2011. 

We are motivated and driven to give our clients a competitive, safe, and environmentally friendly option to choose deconstruction over demolition for any building project. The demolition status quo uses machines such as excavators and dump trucks to crush and remove buildings with little thought to its history or embodied energy. This method is both shortsighted and wasteful. Deconstruction, on the other hand, involves precision and detail on how we remove and take apart buildings so that waste is limited.

Most salvaged materials have value and can be reused or repurposed with a new life, or donated to a building reuse store such as Home Resource or Habitat for Humanity Restore. Deconstruction means putting men to work while reducing waste, and providing the local community with materials at an affordable price.

Currently building materials from our deconstruction projects are sold at our outdoor storage yard located at 2604 Industry Street, off of West Broadway in Missoula. We have amassed quite a collection of items over the years, which includes: beams, dimensional lumber, hardwood flooring, bricks, insulation, doors, windows, flashing, metal roofing, sinks, and so many other treasures!

Waste Less Works is a wonderland of STUFF! Remember when stuff was made to last?! That's the stuff they've got. 100% of their inventory would be forgotten in a landfill right now if they hadn't stepped in to salvage it. Deconstruction and material recovery help us towards a more sustainable future! Their yard is OVERFLOWING with solid, built to last materials at a fraction of the cost. Antiques, commercial kitchen gear, doors, toilets, and pieces of Missoula history! Way more building materials than Home Resource and better prices most of the time. A terrific place to hunt for treasure or come directly to the yard guys, they know their stuff. If you're lucky you'll catch a glimpse of Abby, the fastest, cutest rabbit-chasing junkyard dog in the West. Worth the trip.
