Rest in Peace Steve Drobinsky, Owner of Ohmega Salvage in Berkeley

We were saddened to hear about the death of Steve Drobinsky, one of the pioneers of the creative reuse movement in Berkeley. Long before scavenging and foraging became trendy, Drobinsky had built a successful business on the idea of reaping gems from scrap. His company, Ohmega Salvage, traded in vintage or “unusual” architectural parts, culled hidden jewels from landfills, and offered DIY tutorials for fledgling preservationists. Its goal was to supply homeowners and contractors with the raw materials for beautiful and sustainable restoration.
