Community Forklift

A recovered building materials store that fosters community revitalization, environmental responsibility, and job creation by selling surplus, salvaged, and green construction materials at affordable prices. Community Forklift is the DC-area’s hometown nonprofit reuse center for home improvement supplies. We collect donations of unwanted and salvaged building materials and make them available to the community at low cost. We also distribute free supplies to nonprofits and neighbors in need and offer public education and events centered on reuse. Community Forklift lifts up local communities by making repairs affordable, reducing waste, promoting reuse, and creating green jobs.
