The Building Materials Resource Center is a nonprofit building
materials re-use project. We accept donations of good quality
used and surplus building materials and sell them to the public
at low prices. In addition, low and moderate-income customers and
nonprofits are eligible for a considerable discount on those prices.
The BMRC also offers a wide range of homeowner support services,
including home improvement classes, in-home consults, a do-it-yourself
window repair shop, and much more.
The mission of the Building Materials Resource Center is twofold:
(1) To equip lower income homeowners with the building materials
and support to repair and care for their homes affordably, allowing
them to achieve a higher level of economic independence, build their
wealth, and improve their lives and neighborhoods; and (2) To reduce
the construction industry's burden on the solid waste stream by
diverting perfectly good materials from landfills and delivering
them into the hands of homeowners and nonprofits.
