FAMILY RUN SINCE '89
We're Murco, the leading Midwest company dedicated to the salvage and reuse of residential building materials.
Our Mission? To champion recycling efforts for the good of all involved: our buyers, sellers and the environment.
Meet Jodi Murphy | President
As a leading expert in building waste diversion, Jodi has helped redistribute thousands of tons of high-end materials from homes headed for the landfill. Her iconic humor and energy make live-auctions a thrill, and her tack-sharp wit and can-do vibe have become the foundation of Murco’s positive attitude.
Jodi had earned industry-wide recognition throughout her 26 years in the business, including an induction into the National Environmental Hall of Fame in 2008. She was the host and star of the television show “Total Wrecklamation,” (2008) a series about Murco’s recycling efforts. When Jodi’s not at the helm of Murco auctions, she lends her auctioneering skills to many charity benefits in the Chicagoland area.
Meet Madelyn | Operations Coordinator
As operations coordinator of Murco Recycling, Madelyn is the guru of our behind-the-scenes organization. Murco is a family business, so this wacky world of home demolition is nothing new to Madelyn; she worked her way up from a kid doing cartwheels at auction sites to becoming the most efficient communicator in the biz. When she’s not promptly getting back to inquires of buyers and sellers, Madelyn’s cracking people up all over Chicago as an improv comedian. And you thought salvaging materials was a humorless job, didn’t you?
