Where Can I Donate Building Materials?

Are you tearing down a piece of real property or undergoing a major renovation? You may notice that demolition produces A LOT of waste. Did you know that a lot of the materials could possibly be reused or refurbished for other uses, and you could save big on your taxes at the same time? It’s called deconstruction, and it is your key to a significant tax deduction while saving the planet and your community! Here is how you can get connected with the right organizations to answer your question, “Where can I donate building materials?”

How to Find Organizations to Accept Donations

It is a misconception that you will need to research organizations on your own. Instead, Green Donation Consultants is your deconstruction concierge. We connect you with non-profit organizations throughout the nation. They will schedule the deconstruction team and coordinate material pickup and distribution. The time and effort required of the donor are nearly zero!

What Type of Organizations Accept Donated Building Materials?

There is a large variety of organizations that will accept donated building materials gathered from deconstruction. Many schools, community centers, and other community-service-oriented organizations accept donations of all kinds, including used appliances, furniture, and other materials. Other non-profits utilize the lumber, flooring, cabinets, and other used material to rebuild properties for low-income families or buildings to serve the community. Building supplies that would otherwise end up in a landfill are given a second chance to improve the lives of others!

How to Get Started

Getting started is incredibly simple. Call our team at Green Donation Consultants to schedule a free inspection. You will receive a no-obligation quote that you can discuss with your tax professionals to determine if deconstruction is the right choice for you. If you are ready to move forward, we connect you with a local 501(c)3 non-profit organization that will work with you to determine the timeline for deconstruction.

Once that process is complete, our qualified appraisers assess the fair market value of the materials donated. We then create a completely personalized qualified appraisal document to attach IRS forms to and submit with your tax return. After that process is complete, you will receive your tax deduction!

Ready to get started? Contact Green Donation Consultants today at 800-870-3965. We are happy to answer any questions you have about deconstruction.
