Area homeowners and building professionals have a new resource for purchasing and disposing of used building materials that are still in good condition. The Lifecycle Building Center (www.lifecyclebuildingcenter.org) is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that salvages building materials from local construction sites and demolition projects, storing and reselling the materials at a 12,000 square-foot retail facility in southwest Atlanta. Proceeds from each sale are reinvested in the community and support the organization’s goal “to reduce solid waste disposal, promote resource efficiency, stimulate economic development and empower every citizen to improve their own built environment,” according to the Lifecycle Building Center website. A list of available materials is posted on the center’s website, and the center is open to the public most days by appointment. To schedule a visit or demolition service, contact executive director Adam Deck at (404) 99-REUSE or firstname.lastname@example.org.
