Murco takes care of the "out with old," so you can focus on the "in with the new."

For 29 years, we've been the go-to Waste Coordinators for Chicagoland homeowners looking for eco-friendly diversion options for their outgoing materials. 

Working seamlessly with your construction schedule, we swiftly broker used kitchen and bathroom materials to our thousands of buyers actively looking to incorporate your beautiful materials into their own homes.



How It Works

When our contractor told us that we would have to pay for demolition of the kitchen and also pay for the dumpster, I knew there had to be some other way. My friend recommended Murco Recycling. They came, measured the space, put it up for auction, and on a scheduled date, out my old kitchen went. We were shocked at how smooth the process went. Best of all, it was a win-win situation for us. We made money on a kitchen we were going to get rid of anyway AND we didn’t have to pay for the demolition and dumpster!

Working ahead of the new installation, our free professional services are custom-tailored to work within the scope and timing of your project. Whether you're looking to profit from the outgoing materials, donate, or simply recycle for peace of mind,  we're here to take waste diversion completely off your plate. 

First, we arrive onsite to evaluate & measure the materials. Then, we promptly market them to our thousands of buyers actively seeking high-end, used materials. Our large database and thorough research allows us to efficiently sell materials to experienced buyers. Once the materials are sold, we coordinate a time for the winning buyer to head on-site and remove their purchases. If any items are remaining post-sale, we'll work directly with you to figure out their best donation and/or disposal options.


Why Murco?

We’ve been doing this for 29 years, and we still approach every project with fresh perspective. This mentality allows us to tailor every auction to your demolition timeline and site restrictions. Our expansive experience allows us to quickly write original, engaging content for every item of you have available. Our large audience fosters a competitive bidding environment that ensures you get you the biggest bang for your buck. 

What Materials Are We Looking For?

Murco only features the best of the best in the way of materials. That means, if you’ve got outdated appliances and composite cabinets that have seen better days, it may not be for us (these are the materials our buyers are usually trying to replace in their own homes). The most successful sellers are those in a position where they unfortunately need to remodel a fabulous but not-quite-their-style home. Our buyers also love historical finds or antiques. Original wainscoting, beveled moulding… stuff like that. Drop us a line to let us know what you've got!
