Inventory is constantly changing and generally consists of not only used but also new building construction materials and creative "collectible stuff". The prices will meet anyone's budget!
"90-percent of building materials can be recycled or reused, but are not. Buying new is inefficient," said Bachelder [our founder], "because we are using up resources faster then the planet can replenish them. If you installed a used door instead of buying a new one, you would be saving the environment from cutting down a tree, transporting it, manufacturing it, shipping it and selling it and also saving space in the landfill."
The Away Station accepts the following items: Doors, windows, sinks, tubs, roofing, gutters, pipes, fittings, de-nailed lumber over four-feet long, woodwork, wainscoting, mantels, good-quality frames, flooring, energy-efficient working appliances, countertops, cabinets, brick, stone, slate, garden materials, shelving, hard furniture, light fixtures, tile, sinks, tubs and toilets. The fair market value of material contributions are tax deductible.
Announcement - Starting February 1st, we will be accepting donations of appliances, even if they are not working. In order to provide this service we will be charging a handling fee of $5-$25 per appliance (even if they were working when removed).
