If you’ve recently remodeled a part of your house or are contemplating some construction, you might want to consider an innovative program of the Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse.  They are a non-profit organization that promotes reduction of waste in landfills through sustainable deconstruction and reuse practices.

In other words, you can visit their site in Evanston to donate some of your reusable building materials or you can use them as a place to shop for unique salvageable items to include in your remodeling effort.  Either way, they are there to take it easy on the landfills. 

Their details follow:
