COVID-19: CHANGES TO LBC OPERATIONS

Updated as of January 7, 2021

Out of concern for the safety of our customers, clients and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, Lifecycle Building Center’s daily operations have been significantly modified. Please know that we are working diligently to roll out our new operational procedures as quickly as possible. We deeply appreciate your patience and support during this difficult time.

Reuse Center & Store

New Store Hours

Starting January 7th, LBC will temporarily restrict operating hours for the Reuse Center to Thursday through Saturday from 10am-4pm, as we expand our team's capacity in order to better serve our community. We will also be temporarily restricting material donation pickups to Tuesdays and Wednesdays during this time, and deconstruction services will only be available on a limited basis. 

We will continue to share updates, and we appreciate your patience as we work to improve our programs and services!

Shop In-person By Appointment

LBC has resumed in-person shopping. Appointment shopping is encouraged to avoid waiting. Schedule a shopping appointment HERE. Saturday appointments are highly recommended to avoid long wait times. We do our best to accommodate walk ups, but may ask you to wait to ensure safe social distancing. Our gate may be closed during store hours depending on staff availability and building occupancy.
