Their Junk, Your Treasure

Their Junk, Your Treasure

So you've redone the bathroom and are working on the kitchen. You're on a first-name basis with the staff at the Do-It-Yourself Stores and your garage is starting to look like a hurricane hit. What do you do with your left over drywall? Light fixtures? Cabinets? Before you dump it, see if you can pass it along. Ads in many local papers and websites are free. Your old vanity is going to look better in someone else's house than in the landfill.


A large amount of landfill content is construction material. These materials take up valuable space and don't breakdown easily. Old sinks, toilets, concrete and drywall will sit for years taking up space and shortening the life of landfills.  Do your part and try to re-purpose items before dumping them. Check out your local classifieds to find left over building supplies before you buy your own. Two sheets of drywall might not seem like a lot, but it will reduce the cost of your reno and save the landfill at the same time.
