Building Materials

Find another use

If your building materials are in good, usable condition, they can often be reused.

See Building Material Salvage & Recycling and below for opportunities to sell, exchange or donate your building materials.

Recycling and Disposal Stations

The Recycling & Disposal Stations have a program to salvage reusable items that would otherwise end up in the landfill.

Most building materials can be disposed of at a Recycling and Disposal Station for a fee.

See the guidelines on wood for more information.
