Did you know construction and demolition debris makes up OVER HALF of our nation’s solid waste? Contractors and manufacturers need to clear out leftovers and excess inventory, and have to throw away brand new items. During renovations, homeowners often have to toss out perfectly good things, like gently-used cabinets or appliances. These materials can be sold cheaply, so homeowners and small businesses can afford repairs – making neighborhoods cleaner and safer. We are also a resource for nonprofits, churches, and temples that fix up homes for the elderly or disadvantaged. Schools, artists, and theatre groups can buy low-cost art materials or props. Renovators can find antique trim to preserve historic buildings. Local governments receive less debris at landfills and incinerators, saving money and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Everyone benefits from less waste and a cleaner environment! The proceeds from this sale go to help lift up communities in the DC region, by making repairs affordable, reducing waste and creating green jobs. Thank you for your support!
