At Home Depot, I overheard a woman asking an employee where she could donate used building materials. Whether it was items such as tiles or cabinets that had been removed and replaced, but were still usable, or just excess paint or boards, she felt bad throwing it away, but didn't know what else to do with it. The employee didn't have an answer for her, and I didn't, either. I knew about the Baltimore Free Store, but that seemed too far away. Now, I know what the answer should have been: Community Forklift, near Hyattsville. (I heard about it from The Daily Compost.) Next time I have a home improvement project, I might buy some of their cheap stuff.
