The LIFECYCLE BUILDING CENTER (LBC) is a collaborative effort between many Atlanta area stakeholders. The idea is to reduce construction solid waste disposal, promote resource efficiency, stimulate economic development, and empower every citizen to improve their own built environment.
The heart of the LBC concept is our large-scale used building materials retail facility that sells or otherwise directs material to the general public in lieu of disposal. The sales revenue, foot traffic, and operational behavior of the facility are leveraged to enact the LBC mission and creatively serve the community at large.
A big thanks to Sphereographic for Donating the Virtual Tour!!
THANK YOU for your support! We were able to raise $83,000 toward growing the LBC operation through more deconstruction projects, expanded pickup services, and longer store hours, all of which will keep more reusable materials out of the landfill.
THANK YOU for helping us exceed our goal by over $33,000!!

Donated Forklift from Balfour Beatty
On November 30, the LBC received an incredible gift; a donated forklift from Balfour Beatty Construction! This piece of equipment now plays an essential role in the success of the LBC operation by significantly increasing our staff's efficiency, and by allowing us to take on material pickups that would have previously been impossible. Thank you Balfour Beatty for your belief in the LBC's mission!
Donated Box Truck from Southern Lighting Source
We're thrilled to announce that this beauty of a truck has finally found a home at the LBC thanks to Southern Lighting Source! This donation has already made a huge difference in our ability to collect material and our pick-up services, including a recent project collaboration with LBC Community Partner JE Dunn Construction and at the Morningside Salvage Project (pics). Soon you'll see Adam's artistic handiwork put to use when he brands our new family member with the LBC logo!
LBC Expands into 70,000SF Facility
At the Happy Hour event on October 17th, The LBC Board announced their decision to expand from the 12,000 square foot building into the full 70,000 square foot facility at 1116 Murphy Avenue SW, 30310. This move has profoundly impacted our operation by enabling us to accept a much wider range of material donations. View our SHOP page or visit us in person.
The LBC facility is open to the public on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10am-6pm or make an appointment with Adam Deck at 404-99-REUSE or email@example.com
