Used building materials from construction and demolition sites and home renovation projects make up about 40% of our waste. A lot of this material is reusable if handled properly. By buying used, you can save money and help our environment. Habitat for Humanity operates Reusable Building Materials Stores as fundraising projects in many communities. There are also numerous companies that specialize in used building materials. Contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline for a list of organizations in your area.
Remember, Surrey Reuses is a great place to list your used building materials or to look for used building materials.
