At The Away Station we provide a different way.
A Way to make use of what we already have.

 The Away Station is a building materials ReUse facility located in Marin County, CA.
Our goal is to make ReUse as easy as possible for you.

90% of building materials can be ReUsed, but are not.  Buying new is inefficient because we are using up resources faster than the planet can replenish them.  The Away Station (TAS) can help!

Our solutions are unique and can be incorporated into almost any type of project.
