Reclaim Appalachia exists to convert mining-impacted lands in Central Appalachia into sustainable economic development sites by tapping into the resiliency and work ethic of former miners and other coalfield workers.

We improve environmental remediation practices and policies.

In operation since 2013, Reclaim Appalachia salvages building materials from abandoned and dilapidated buildings. We hire unemployed people to reuse, resell and recycle the deconstructed materials. Thus, keeping the materials out of landfills. All proceeds from resales are put back into job training. We are reviving proud Appalachian heritage for a bright future.

We are always looking for new project sites, contact us if you have access to mining impacted lands that could be reclaimed or developed. Learn more about our work and existing project sites.

We measure success according to the triple bottom line.
