About: What is PDX RUST?

Portland ReUse for Societal Transformation – A week of local reuse innovation, creativity, and inspiration from your neighborhood hub! September 24th – 30th 2017.

Portland was chosen to host the largest national Deconstruction and Building Material Reuse Conference in the country. 

Hundreds of building material reuse professionals will be attending expo events from September 24th to 27th.

To honor our Portland Community who will not be attending the Decon + Reuse ’17 Expo, PDX RUST is celebrating with a week of ongoing events in your neighborhood by your neighbors!

To Present at PDX RUST – Do you have a reuse passion you want to tell the world about? Can you do it in 15 minutes or less? Sign up and we will match you with a host site.

To Host at PDX RUST – Expose yourself and your customers to the creativity that abounds in Portland! Sign up to host up to three speakers and open your world to new ideas, business, and connections.


*PDX RUST is an all volunteer neighborhood initiative. It exists for one week only. If you want to join us in honoring our Portland reuse community – please contact us.
