I.M. Salvage was founded in Milwaukee, WI in 1986, but Bones has been collecting salvaged items long before then. Bones’ primary business used to be remodeling and construction, and the start of I.M. Salvage originally served to assist in collecting materials. Bones’ efforts now serve a wide variety of clientele, everyone from housewives to major contractors. I.M. Salvage is part of the Building Materials Reuse Association (BMRA), an international group representing companies whose goals are to avoid filling up landfills and to reduce the use of new materials.
