DIVERTING MATERIALS FROM LANDFILLS
Resource Central has diverted more than 50 million pounds of building materials from landfills. That’s why we’re so proud of our materials reuse program, which furthers our mission to put conservation into action by making it simple. By working with communities to reuse and recycle donated materials from deconstructions, we reduce waste and provide highly discounted materials for new builds. This refurbishing process reduces both the environmental impact and economic cost of new buildings in Colorado.
To donate or shop reused materials, visit Resource Central at 6400 Arapahoe Rd, Boulder, CO 80303.
We are open Monday to Saturday 9am – 5pm
Colorado residents donate millions of pounds of building materials every year, which we resell for significantly less than their retail value. We accept a huge variety of materials that are often challenging to dispose of otherwise, including lumber, cabinetry, doors, windows, appliances, sinks and more. Reuse Store >
