Video: The Rebuilding Center

The Rebuilding Center, a non-profit run by volunteers in Portland, Oregon, takes what is considered waste by some and gives it a second life. "[It] opened to the public in 1998 and moved to a 24,000 square foot warehouse in 1999. By 2001, five tons of materials were being kept out of the landfill each day! In 2005 The ReBuilding Center completed its expansion project, adding 40,000 square feet of developed property and the potential to divert nearly ten tons of construction and demolition waste per day by 2008."
