Yes and no. The SRBs (solid rocket boosters) and EFT (external fuel tank) are jettisoned on takeoff. The orbiter (the part that lands) is reused, though several components are replaced periodically, such as the heat shield tiles, thruster assemblies, and computer components.


Which part of a space shuttle does not get reused?

The 2 solid fuel rockets are jettisoned prior to departing the atmosphere and parachute down. These are recovered from the sea and refurbrished for re-use. The large (orange) External Fuel Tank is not recovered. It stays with the Shuttle until it enters into space. So when it is jettisoned it burns up on re-entry.
