Every city should have one of these

Today I visited the Portland ReBuilding Center, and hopefully you can get an idea of what it is from the title:  it’s a place where people can donate used building materials so they can be sold again for new building projects.  It’s building recycling, or, “rebuilding”.  And it’s great!  Have a look:

I am originally from Cincinnati and they had one as well, called Building Value.  Does your community have a building supply recycling center?  If so, post in the comments!

    We have Historic Houston. They started out mainly as an organization to save and restore smaller historic homes that were being razed for more mcmansions. But they’ve expanded into more overall building materials reuse.

    I’m writing a paper on romoba vacuum cleaners and I identified this article to be incredibly valuable and informative. Thank you.
