Building renovations and demolition represent a significant opportunity to separate materials for reuse. Mis-orders, slightly damaged goods, or left over materials can be salvaged through reuse.
Donated surplus building materials or appliances are resold at a fraction of their retail price, with important benefits:
- Avoid disposal costs
- Reduce taxes through tax-deductible donations to non-profit organizations
- Enable more affordable do-it-yourself projects for homeowners and/or landlords
- Preserve new raw materials.
