Thank you for joining us in reducing construction solid waste; providing free resources to nonprofits, community groups, houses of worship and schools; and redirecting affordable building materials to the community. Material donors can bring materials to the LBC warehouse during store hours or schedule a pick-up by LBC staff. LBC accepts both residential and commercial building material donations. ITEMS SHOULD BE IN USEABLE CONDITION. This means free of fogged or cracked glass, rot, chipping paint, non-hazardous in nature, reasonably complete, etc. Donated items are tax deductible to the extent of the law.

As part of enacting our RESOURCE EFFICIENCY & WASTE REDUCTION MISSION, some materials not listed here are brokered by the LBC in order to keep them from being disposed of, please ask! Additionally, the LBC extends FREE INFORMATION to the general public about reuse and recycling options for many types of common waste materials. If you have questions, please send us an email with photos of item(s) and specifications by emailing donate@lifecyclebuildingcenter.org.

To schedule a deconstruction, please email photos and a description of the project to: donate@lifecyclebuildingcenter.org

Deconstruction is the selective dismantlement of building components, specifically for re-use, repurposing, recycling and waste management. In order to salvage building materials, LBC offers deconstruction services to clients for a fee. Deconstruction is the practice of disassembling a building in such a way that the building materials can be reused and is a cost-competitive alternative to conventional building demolition that results in environmental and social benefits.

Identifying and saving building materials is where it all begins and is the lifeblood of the LBC. Reusable building material comprises 40% of everything thrown away. There are cabinets that could be reinstalled in someone’s home; doors that could be recycled as furniture; materials that should not be tossed into landfills.

The other side of the deconstruction process is the customers who purchase the salvaged materials and items. One of Andrew’s favorite examples of this is when an entire family came down from North Georgia with a truck and trailer. Their goal was to help their son and his new wife renovate their new home and start their lives together. They were able to fill up their trailer with salvaged items from doors to windows, to furniture and appliances. “Through salvaged building materials, LBC helped this family save a couple grand that day, and all from the generosity of individuals and corporations willing to salvage materials from deconstructions".

 GREENING THE SET STRIKE... And Benefiting the Community

HOW YOU CAN HELP PUT SET STRIKE MATERIALS BACK INTO USE:
Donating building materials from set strikes prevents usable material from unnecessarily going to a landfill. The idea is to reduce solid waste disposal, promote resource efficiency, stimulate economic development, and empower every citizen to improve their own built environment by redirecting low-cost materials back into the community.

HOW IT WORKS:
FREE site visit for feasibility. We offer a confidental site visit to identify items we are able to accept or suggest outlets for. An inventory of readily reusable materials is generated by LBC. We then look for guidance regarding what items are feasible to collect. Stage it, or we can pick it up as it’s dismantled. Given the site complexities of most productions, we think the best way to integrate in the set strike process is to offer pick up after materials are dismantled by trade professionals on site. LBC offers limited deconstruction services too, please inquire.
