The Building Materials Reuse Association (BMRA), a longtime Waste to Wealth partner, will hold it’s annual deconstruction conference from April 29 – May 1, 2013, at the Seattle Center in Washington.  The 2013 DECON conference is accepting presentation and session proposals through December 15, 2012.

For its upcoming conference, BMRA is “looking for state-of-the-art and innovative content related to deconstruction, building materials reuse, design for disassembly, and construction and demolition debris recycling.  We welcome proposals for slide presentations, videos, demonstrations, field sessions, posters, panel discussions, short workshops and other forms of presentation.  We encourage cross-disciplinary presentations that integrate several aspects of salvage, reuse and recycling in one project.  This includes projects that are designed toward reuse through design for disassembly and/or deconstruction from their very beginning.”

For more information or to submit a proposal, see BMRA’s website –
